Question Problem in installing Nokia 5300 as a modem.

Hi there
I am using Fedora 10 on my Compaq Presario c300 Laptop.
I also have windows XP installed in it. I want to connect my mobile phone Nokia 5300 Express Music to the Fedora 10 to use it as a modem to surf the internet. When I connect it via an USB it the phone asks for mode of connection as follows:-
1. Nokia Mode
2. Print and Media
3. Data Storage.

In case of Data Storage the phone acts as an USB drive.
In both the other modes the phone shows connected but there is no reply from the Fedora.
Can anybody provide me the guidelines to do that.

Thanks in advance.

I've done it but another problem here

Thanks hurry_hui for trying it out but a friend of mine has helped me out with it.
Now the problem is I've been able to connect Nokia 5300 as a modem and I've dialedthe internet number. My phone is showing that it has connected to the internet but when I am starting Firefox , I cannot browse the net. Firefox is showing that " Firefox is Offline".

I had tried the system update to directly link to the internet but that also failed showing that there is no network connection.
But all along the phone shows that I am connected to the internet.

Please try this peculiar problem.
