Making Huawei E169 3G Modem be friends with Mac OS X Snow Leopard

I have spent the last 5 months trying to make a Huawei e169 modem work with MacOS X Snow Leopard and I can proudly say that I have finally got it working.. thanks to a excellent tutorial that I found on the web. You can find this original article here.
