Nexus one tethering with ubuntu 9.10

Need to Tether from Nexus One to ubuntu?

I followed the steps in this blog:
http://www.asgrim.com/2009/07/24/tethering-your-htc-magic-android-phone-in-ubuntu-9-04-jaunty-jackalope/

and I can use my 3G cell connection from the nexus one to ubuntu 9.10.
Presented on the blog are the steps for the HTC Magic, so configuring adb for the nexus one is slightly different:

I edited udev permissions and created a new file:
# /etc/udev/rules.d/99-android.rules
SUBSYSTEM=="usb", ATTRS{idVendor}=="18d1", SYMLINK+="android_adb", MODE="0666"
# sudo restart udev
# adb devices
List of devices attached
HT036P901270 device

Here's a screenshot of the speed I get with FIDO:
