I may be talking out of my arse here, but I think it should work. It's a 
PCMCIA card and will identify itself as  a modem. It's more or less a 
hardware modem that does UMTS/GPRS so you just use it in the same way that 
you use a mobile phone to do "dial-up". *99***1# should work.

Having said that, I'd recommend taking a laptop over to the shop and inserting 
the card there and then to see.

Most modern linux distros would then bind /dev/ttyS0 to the card so you can 
then talk to it, just like any other serial device. Minicom can be your 
friend there.
