Introduction
------------
This is the source tarball of Sakis3G script. While granted the
the "script" title, it actually cheats big time. Scope of Sakis3G
is to finally provide a single self-contained shell script to end
user, capable to connect him/her through 3G/UMTS/GPRS. Thus, the
"script" title.

Scope
-----
Scope of this work is to provide an as small as possible single
file which could enable a user to use his 3G USB modem. It does
not, in anyway, attempt to be a complete replacement to fully
featured solutions or distribution specific methodologies, used
for utilizing such devices. Instead, it is supposed to provide:
- An as small as possible solution to those unlucky enough
to have no internet connection, other than their 3G USB
modem. They can use this script to initially bring their
connection up, and then install all required software.
- An alternative solution when anything else has failed.
- A small footprint solution for environments and distri-
butions that need to keep their profile low.
