How to have Internet Using Mobile GPRS on Slackware 11.0 Need settings

I live in a place where no broadband service provider gives internet.
So i use my mobile gprs for net connectivity on Windows XP using Nokia PC Suite.(My set is Nokia N81 and service provider is airtel)

However i also want to connect to internet on Slackware as well.

I have googled and got to know abt this file i.e /etc/wvdial.conf
Before restarting and trying things on Linux i would request someone who has done the above or has knowledge of above to please guide me so that i dont have to switch b/w windows and linux to get inernet.
If some one could provide me the settings i would be grateful and how to configure on Slackware.

Thanks & Regards
