I don't know the phone, but in general, if GPRS works on your phone (can
you for instance get the home-page of your provider on the phone) and if
you have a working connection between your phone and your pc you don't
need gnokii or any other special program to use your phone as a modem
for internet connection with your pc.

You will have to set up ppp, included in every Linux distribution, your
dial-string should be something like:

connect '/usr/bin/chat -v TIMEOUT 90 ABORT BUSY ABORT ERROR ABORT "NO

At least, that is what works for mee with a Nokia 6610i.
