Install Sierra Wireless 595U on Acer Aspire One Linux

I found some instructions here:

http://www.sierrawireless.com/faq/ShowFAQ.aspx?ID=607

...but I'm a Linux n00b and there seem to be some missing steps. I need someone who understands Linux to help me get the steps in the right order so I can use my existing Sprint service and device with my new netbook.

The netbook is running Linpus linux version 2.6.23.9lw (based on Fedora core)

I did get my 595u to connect but need to solve some more problems.
First setup the right click menu as described in http://www.reghardware.co.uk/2008/09/05/ten_aspire_one_tips/

Then update software with software updater.

I installed an update to hal-info that may be needed. Search for hal-info and fc8and download the latest (or later than 200803) rpm. Usually select the title in rpmfind to download the rpm. Save it to Documents. Next open a terminal with the right click menu.
Change to the Documents directory 'cd Documents' ( hint type "cd Do<TAB><ENTER>')
List files - 'ls'
Should see the hal-info....rpm file
change to root
su<ENTER>
-- enter setup password --
Install the rpm with
'rpm -Uvh hal*rpm'

Should see success.

Next Right click -> System -> Add/Remove Software
Enter password
Check Development ->Development Tools

May need to uninstall gettext (to replace lw version with fc8 version) with
rpm -e gettext

Then go to http://www.sierrawireless.com/faq/ShowFAQ.aspx?ID=1235 and download and download source code. Here is where I had trouble . Linpus did not include headers or module Make files. Another kernel fc8 tree was available. I booted into the fc kernel by editing /boot/grub/grub.conf and setting default=0. This break file manager. I will try to obtain linpus kernel build info and try again.

This has happened to my brother in-law several times! I have fixed it twice myself by downloading the driver package from Sierra Wireless DO NOT USE THE ATT SOFTWARE, at least in an Acer 6920, as it trashes Vista beyond repair. Have no idea why they keep selling this, and why they keep telling him to do it all over again. Didn't work from the very beginning, and the ATT salesman did the first install, telling him that he would just have to restart it at home and it would be "all better" - yeah right, now we know why he doesn't work for a real computer company!!!

If it is a Sierra WirelessAirCArd, download the driver from the Sierra Wireless site. The ATT (Cingular) driver is not as good.
