http://crunchbanglinux.org – Hey everyone,First time #! post, man I love this distro. It makes my little EEE PC just fly. Yeah! :DI'm working on getting my lovely #! to connect to the Internet using my iPhone 3GS as a USB tethered 3G modem. I've tried everything else mentioned in the forum on the topic with no luck. My phone is a iPhone 3GS, un-jailbroken running iOS 5.1I installed all the relevant packages through synaptic. I set my phone to "Personal Hotspot", plug it into my EEE PC via USB and then the network icon starts spinning. It comes up as "Wired Network (Apple iPhone)" - Auto eth1 (HowTos)
