Unhappy How do I connect to Telstra Bigpond Wireless Internet on my Linux Laptop?

I have been using Telstra Bigpond Wireless Broadband USB Internet for about 12 months on my Laptop with Windows Vista Operating System.
I also have an Eee PC Notebook (Linux Operating System)that previously connected to the Internet via Desktop Wireless Modem.
The problem I have now is trying to connect to the internet on my Linux Notebook using Telstra Bigpond Wireless Broadband USB.
I have phoned Telstra Technical Assistance and the told me they cannot help me because the Operating System is Linux.
Can anyone out there help me or point me in the right direction?

The whirlpool forums have a lot of info specific to Telstra - have you had a chance to check there as well?
