sharing internet connection with usb phone

hello,i run a fedora 8 internet gateway to provide internet to my home network computers.the internet sharing works fine with
firestarter but i want to share the connection
from the same gateway to a sony erricson v640 that is identified as usb0 network interface.this works fine with xp but won't work on the linux box.another question is How can i share the internet connection with multiple interfaces? Firestarter allows connection sharin just from internet connected
interface eth0 to the internal eth1,so how can i make it share the connection to eth1 and usb 1?after i assign ip and netmask to usb0 and i allow internet sharing to usb0 in firestarter my phone still won't connect.please help
