Cannot find compatible driver--T-Mobile GC89 broadband card??

Just wondering if there were any laptop users out there that use the T-Mobile GC89 broadband card. I have a Toshiba 6100 Satellite Pro --768 RAM -- 40 Gig hd -- Pent D processor (dual boot Ubuntu 6.06.1, and Windoz XP). When I am on the road (truck driver) I access the internet via Windoz with the broadband card. Since I am trying to get M$ free asap, I am trying to get the card to work with linux. I looked on the ndiswrapper compatibility list and found nothing. Any "How To" directions for this card would be reallllllly appreciated. Thanks for the help.

No driver is needed (it looks like a modem). There's a HOWTO here.

Thank you for the reply and link for this problem. Going to try and see if I can set this thing up. I'm not very computer literate, but I will try and see what happens. I really appreciate the response--first one I've gotten that had any suggestions. Thanks again!!
