Unhappy Usb mobile phone data transfer

Hello Everybody
I've been using Linux [mainly Red Hat and now Mandriva but I'm prepared to make more partitions for booting other distros if I need to. Is there a distro out there which will allow me to use my Nec e228 mobile phone usb data cable? Mandriva lists it as 'unknown'[but does show its name]. I wouldn't like to have to pay 25 for Nec's cd. Really 25 quid! And it may only support Windows.
By the way if the existing hardware does support Linux its supposed to be free on 'ebay'. Yeah! I got the cable only.
Penquins are great creatures.

Yes, you do need to buy the software, and yes, it'll be windows only.
