BlackBerry 8330 tethering to Internet using Ubuntu/Jaunty via usb

I have just acquired the blackberry 8330 curve cell phone with all the bells and whistles. I pay for unlimited internet access and was wondering how I can connect my blackberry to my laptop and use the internet access that I pay for using a usb connection. I believe they use a word called ,"Tethering"
