I know it is unlikely, but does your laptop have enough RAM to run Ubuntu
as a virtual machine under VMware?

Meanwhile, this page:

http://www.pharscape.org/hso.html

offers a kernel driver that you can build and install with dkms.
But it also suggests that it is present in Ubuntu 8.10, so I'd have
imagined it might be in 9.10. Under linux, as root, try saying:

ifconfig -a
modprobe hso
ifconfig -a

If it works, you should see an extra ethernet interface appear
in the output of ifconfig. It won't be configured at all; that's a
separate operation.

We knew Army cadets were involved because they cut through two fences
to get to the goats, and 15 feet away there was an unlocked gate.
