Install Sierra Wireless 595U on Acer Aspire One Linux

\015 I found some instructions here:http://www.sierrawireless.com/faq/ShowFAQ.aspx?ID=607...but I'm a Linux n00b and there seem to be some missing steps. I need someone who understands Linux to help me get the steps in the right order so I can use my existing Sprint service and device with my new netbook.The netbook is running Linpus linux version 2.6.23.9lw (based on Fedora core)\015

Answers :

I did get my 595u to connect but need to solve some more problems.
First setup the right click menu as described in http://www.reghardware.co.uk/2008/09/05/ten_aspire_one_tips/

Then update software with software updater.

I installed an update to hal-info that may be needed. Search for hal-info and fc8and download the latest (or later than 200803) rpm. Usually select the title in rpmfind to download the rpm. Save it to Documents. Next open a terminal with the right click menu.
Change to the Documents directory 'cd Documents' ( hint type "cd Do<TAB><ENTER>')
List files - 'ls'
Should see the hal-info....rpm file
change to root
su<ENTER>
-- enter setup password --
Install the rpm with
'rpm -Uvh hal*rpm'

Should see success.

Next Right click -> System -> Add/Remove Software
Enter password
Check Development ->Development Tools

May need to uninstall gettext (to replace lw version with fc8 version) with
rpm -e gettext

Then go to http://www.sierrawireless.com/faq/ShowFAQ.aspx?ID=1235 and download and download source code. Here is where I had trouble . Linpus did not include headers or module Make files. Another kernel fc8 tree was available. I booted into the fc kernel by editing /boot/grub/grub.conf and setting default=0. This break file manager. I will try to obtain linpus kernel build info and try again.
