Grab the KPPP package and install it.  Set up a new connection, the
phone number is "#777" (without the quotes) and PAP/CHAP
authentication.  Set up a modem (probably at /dev/ttyACM0), the rest
of the settings defaults should work.  Sprint doesn't use passwords,
you'll just need your account name (in the form of
username at sprintpcs.com)

You will probably have to tweak redial and timeout settings, the
drivers are no where near as good as they are on Windows and
connections occasionally drop- but you should be able to get
acceptable performance.
