You need to edit /etc/wvdial.conf and specify the phone number, login name, and password of your internet account in order for WvDial to work. In the conf file you can edit out the search for serial ports and have it use the USB port and not try the serial ports that do not exist. There is a graphical front end to wvdial called gnome-ppp. Add gnome-ppp to your Mandriva as this should be easier to configure.
