How to use Motorola V3X in linux?!

I don't feel good about it ... I hope I can still use my phone in linux!
I don't want to install linux :S:S:S..

Please help me with Motorola V3X in linux!, I tried to mount it, tried moto4lin without succes.
I'm using slackware 11, and here's the dmesg after I plugged the phone in :

usb 3-2: new full speed USB device using ohci_hcd and address 3
usb 3-2: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice
scsi4 : SCSI emulation for USB Mass Storage devices
usb-storage: device found at 3
usb-storage: waiting for device to settle before scanning
scsi 4:0:0:0: Direct-Access     Motorola Motorola Phone   2.31 PQ: 0 ANSI: 2
sd 4:0:0:0: Attached scsi removable disk sdb
sd 4:0:0:0: Attached scsi generic sg1 type 0
usb-storage: device scan complete

mount your phone like any other removable media
check the device
#fdisk -l
should see something similar to:
/dev/sda1 * 1 968 124798+ 6 FAT16
then mount your device:
#mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/mobile

what's wrong with moto4lin?

this is what I got :

fdisk -l

Disk /dev/sda: 163.9 GB, 163928604672 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 19929 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes

   Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System
/dev/sda1               1       10199    81923436    7  HPFS/NTFS
/dev/sda2           10200       11428     9871942+  83  Linux
/dev/sda4           11429       19929    68284282+   5  Extended
/dev/sda5           11429       11914     3903763+  83  Linux
/dev/sda6           11915       19072    57496603+  83  Linux
/dev/sda7           19073       19680     4883728+  83  Linux
/dev/sda8           19681       19929     2000061   82  Linux swap

nothing like you've mentioned.
dmesg shows the same output like the 1st post.

what's wrong with moto4lin? it's just doesn't work... I guess it didn't find my device or something..
