Using AT&T USB Connect 881 on Mandriva Linux-KDE

I have Mandriva Linux 2009 on an MSI Wind using the KDE Desktop and have a USB Connect 881 modem that I'm trying to use to connect to the AT&T network.
I tried this in the past with OpenSUSE and never got it to connect and for other reasons changed to Mandriva.
How do I go about getting this to work with Mandriva? If I'm correct the drivers are already included but what type of software do I need to use to make the connection?
Also, what type of settings do i need to use to actually dial in and connect to the network once I have the right software?
Thank you for your help.

When you boot up your machine and the hardware detection codes go by, do you see a driver for it?

Make sure the device is recognized by the kernel. See if there is a listing for it in the Hardware Control Panel under USB devices. Someone mention you may need to use ndswrapper, the driver that uses Windows drivers. I'm not certain on this just giving some thoughts.
