How to connect SE w518 w508 to internet using USB cable through PC

(1) Make sure your w5x8 is properly setup. Go to menu->setting->connectivity->USB and set the phone to "PHONE" mode and USB network to "via computer" (instead of using as MODEM). Also in Internet setting, make sure "allow local connection" is enable.
(2) On Windows XP, if now you connect your cellphone to the pc through USB cable, you should see that another ethernet is established but the IP address can not be obtained. That's okay because we're going to setup the local network so your phone can be tunneled through the PC.
(3) On Windows XP. in control panel-> network connection->setup a home or small office network, setup a local network by selecting "my computer is directly connected to the internet" then select the primary network which is the network that is connected to the Internet.

How to move windows using arrow keys in keyboard in Backtrack 4

The answer so far is no. In Ubuntu you can ( Alt + F7 or selfdefined then arrow keys). But somehow in Backtrack 4 when you type Alt + F7 then you can ONLY move windows by using mouse, which is annoying because we lose the keyboard controlability inherent in Linux.
