I would like to be able to use this device with Ubuntu Karmic. However, I am not sure how to do so. The relevant subset of what I get when I invoke "lsusb -v" indicates that internally it integrates some hardware from Alcor Micro: Bus 006 Device 003: ID 058f:9520 Alcor Micro Corp.

With a SIM card installed, attempting to mount either /dev/sdd or /dev/sde to /mnt didn't do anything useful. Can anyone help? (Hardware)
