I decided to create this page when I discovered how hard it was to find information on how to connect to Demon using Linux. It lists web pages which have information which are particularly useful to Demon subscribers. Note these are all links to information, not to specific software. Most are aimed at Demon users in particular and new users of Linux in general.
This page was originally created in February 1999, at that time, five years ago, Linux was a lot harder to install, setup and configure than it is now. With improvments to both the commandline and GUI tools that allow you to connect to the Internet via modem or network connection (including ADSL usb) many of these site are unneeded.
NB I now have no connection to Demon except as an ex-customer.
