Install Sierra Wireless 595U on Acer Aspire One Linux

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)

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.

Windows on the acer aspire one 110-AB


I do not believe this ...the only way is if there is a dual boot system installed so when you boot it should prompt you to choose the op sys ya want to run ...the solution is as fallows...either you install the windows xp ...but I heard about problems with some notebooks that came with Linux cause the HDD is too small to support windows,,,( ex 2G...) and if you install it you will not have room for anything else ..if you dont want to mess with this my solution is .. web msn messenger ..so you will be able to use it without install it ...

If it is a Sierra WirelessAirCArd, download the driver from the Sierra Wireless site. The ATT (Cingular) driver is not as good.
