there is a number of things you can try:
1. reasonably often Networkmanager recognises the modem and you can set 
up the connection using networkmanager
2. if that does not work there is a "semi-gui" script called Sakis3g at 
3. finally from command line wvdial works almost everything

first of all: what provider (Africom, Powertel, Econet) and what modem?
