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.

OK, the UMTS card is working, and now I'd need VPN.
Usually, when being connected by other means than UMTS, I'm using knetworkmanager to establish a VPN connection.
However, when being connected via UMTS, knetworkmanager's shortcut to an existing VPN connection I'd created before is greyed out / deactivated.
This is on Ubuntu (GNOME). Under System --> Administration --> Network, one can enable the modem configured in wvdial.config. Dialing (connecting via UMTS) works without that, but then knetworkmanager (and the networking tray icon) are aware of this connection, too.
Unfortunately, I'm getting this error (in /var/log/syslog) when trying to establish the VPN connection via knetworkmanager:
NetworkManager: <WARNING>^I nm_vpn_manager_activate_vpn_connection (): nm_vpn_manager_activate_vpn_connection(): no currently active network device, won't activate VPN.
