Interesting. Unfortunately (if you'll note the remaining comments) 
internet tethering doesn't work because there is no driver (yet), so if 
you an help with that issue then we can all have networking our androids :)

Search this list for android and you'll find the information we have so 
far. If you can add more information to this (output from usbconfig, 
dmesg, research, output from your Mac, etc) then please post.
