Blueyonder modems normally have an ethernet port on them. The easiest way to make it work is to use a network lead.
If you don't want to use the ethernet port for whatever reason then it is fairly easy to make the USB port work too.
Drivers should be fairly easy. First of all you need to get a list of current network devices. As root:
modprobe CDCEther modprobe usbnet
dhclient3 -pf /var/run/dhclient.eth0.pid -lf /var/lib/dhcp3/dhclient.eth0.leases eth0
Assuming all that works, put the modules into /etc/modules and reboot. Then configure the device to use dhcp as you would any other network card.
All of this is done from the command line which means you'll be able to run them against any distribution you care to install.
Let us know how you get on,

or failing that, plug it into a router and then plug your pc into the router and you don't have to install anything.You know, aliens are going to come to earth in 50 years and kill the hell out of us for DDoSing their networks with this SETI crap
