Firstly I find it best to use pppoe and the ethernet port, but there is a
usb/pcmcia driver available (I use it on my notebook, pcmcia)
You will need to have your kernel headers installed along with
build-essential, then basically just extract the archive and run "make &&
sudo make install"
Check out the Debian live project  or Debian wiki 
Not sure about the v800, I had a w810i, and whenever I connected my phone it
would ask if I wanted phone mode or transfer mode.
I would choose phone mode, and then get two serial
ports /dev/ttyACM0, /deb/ttyACM1 and I know you use one of these to get dial
up. Never tried, but google is your friend.
Hope this helps.
