Hi Lally,

Here are some notes I took when configuring the USB networking, it's  
not really different from the wiki page.

It's working great on my macbook ( and with image 2008.8), it might  
help you:

* Install AJZaurusUSB driver on mac:
* After reboot, configure USB networking in Network pref panel:

IP-V4: manual
IP-Addr: (you can use anything in 192.168.0.* but OM is  
configured by default to use as the external gateway)
Subnet: (should be the default - see tip below if have  
issue with these settings)
Router: (not actually needed, OS X can figure this out  
for itself, unless you have other conflicting configurations)

* Connect openmoko and: ssh root at
* hotplug problem, disconnected network -> change usb port, reboot  
* Some crash on the mac if you boot/shutdown with the usb plugged
