How do I enable USB tethering with Cyanogenmod 7.0.3 and Ubuntu Lucid?

http://oldwiki.cyanogenmod.org/index.php?title=Tethering mentions Settings » Wireless & networks » Tethering » USB tethering, but there is no such option Tethering.

With http://code.google.com/p/android-wired-tether/ the phone application says that I have a bad kernel (on the phone). ifconfig on the laptop doesn't show usb0.

The built-in tethering should be Settings->Wireless and Network->Tethering & portable hotspot->USB tethering. I think the name of the menu simply changed between CM6 and CM7 from "Tethering" to "Tethering & portable hotspot".

Edit: Additionally, it appears that some phones are simply not supported due to kernel issues. For these devices, the menu option will not be present. This thread on the CyanogenMod forums discusses this, and notes at least two devices which fall into this category (the HTC Tattoo and the ZTE Blade).
