First you need the settings your operator requires. If you have an installation instruction (may be for Windows, it doesn't matter) that's sufficient. Then a dialer. I recommend KPPP, you probably have it already installed (if not, it's on your installation cd). Run it and try to configure your account. Option names would be similar to the ones from your manual. If you're in doubt, post the settings (or link to them) and somebody should be able to tell you which options to use in Linux.
