I haven't got Ubuntu 8, only 7. All I did with my USB modem was configure wvdial with command: sudo wvdialconf /etc/wvdial.conf. I'm pretty sure wvdial was already installed. Then edit the /etc/wvdial.conf file to include ISP information and remove ' ;' at the beginning of those three ISP lines, save the file and issue command: sudo wvdial to dial out.
