I have it working on one of my laptops using the USB version of the 
card.  Should pretty much be the same principle, I think.  I used the 
ppp package to get it to work, and if I recall right I had to "activate" 
the account using Windows, but after that it works just fine.  I can try 
to dig up the details when I get home tonite.

I found most of the info on the web, via google.
