How can I connect to the internet on Damn Small Linux by tethering a Nokia phone?

I need to connect to the internet on DSL Linux using a Nokia mobile phone (EDGE connection).

I have done this successfully in Puppy Linux by probing for modems (the modem was auto-detected as /dev/atty0 or something similar). The phone number i used was *99#.

Can somebody guide me to do the same on Damn Small Linux?
Excuse me for being naive, but networking is beyond me!

    Sorry, the modem was probed as /dev/ttyACM0 in Puppy linux.
    I'd like to add that i'm using Damn Small Linux 4.4.10, and i intend to tether the phone via USB cable.- Nimbu Paani
