you don't need to install driver, just boot your system and attache your wireless phone and it will install the driver, during boot process it will install. after that edit /etc/wvdial.conf file,
and about setting !!!!!!!!

i would recommend trying ubuntu, or debian. one major point in their favor is that you can upgrade from, say, 6.06 to 6.10, or 6.10 to 7.04, or 7.04 to 7.10 -- all without reinstalling. you just have to run the upgrade tool, and it downloads the updated packages for you.

other stuff, like postfix/sendmail, named, apache2, etc -- they're pretty much the same.
