Firstly I find it best to use pppoe and the ethernet port, but there is a 
usb/pcmcia driver[1] 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"

Live DVD
Check out the Debian live project [2] or Debian wiki [3]

Sony Ericsson
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.
