BTConnect works fine for me on Suse 10 (and has done on Suse 8 and 8)

I think most ISP's will allow Linux. I use NTL and my Xandros works fine the only problem is they won't help you if you have a problem, as soon as you mention Linux they run and hide.

I've always (Actually there was one exception...) that whatever ISP you use, the helpdesk will first of all tell you that they don't know much about Linux, and then it will become slowly obvious that they do.

I've always had good service from Zetnet and Nildram. AOL actually tried to be helpful, but you know that one exception I mentioned?...

You could use a Router to connect to the ISP, then it's just a matter of using an ethernet connection for internet access with whatever operating system you want to use.

I have been using Blueyonder with all sorts of Linux distro`s for over two years now.
But if it goes wrong they say they cannot help.
Easiest way as suggested above is through a router.
