You need to install the linux-restricted-modules package for the
installed kernel. The driver is called ltserial (plus companion 
module ltmodem), which should be loaded on booting the computer. 
The device will be /dev/ttyLTM0, the interface should show up as
ppp0 in System -> Administration -> Networking (configure in 
Properties, no need to mess with wvdial etc).
