Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

To use it as a modem, run your terminal program (e.g., minicom) and set the device to what was detected (e.g., /dev/ttyUSB0). You use the same Hayes AT commands that you would use on a regular modem.
The sync programs also require configuration with the device name. Check the man page or documentation for each package to see how you need to configure the device. For example, for the gnokii/xgnokii programs I use, I needed to edit /etc/gnokiirc to specify the device information.
You can chmod or chown the device file to make it accessible to you as a user. Depending on how your distribution automates this, you may need to add an entry to /etc/security/console.perms or add/update a udev rule in /etc/udev/rules.d/. If you have trouble figuring this out, start a new question regarding your distribution and automating the permissions. That way, someone familiar with that distribution will take notice.
Finally got my phone connected to Kmobile tools by setting the device to /dev/ttyACM0 and got my phone talking to linux but getting errors while dialing to ppp through gprs, kppp gives connection error when dialed and wvdial gives username and password not supplied error. but in my gprs service there is no username & password, it just dials to my apn and establishes connection. i could not figure out where the problem is but i have not tried this before, the same works well in windows by mobile networking wizard in sony ericsson pc suite.
