8330 Curve - Tethered Modem with Acer Aspire One Netbook ?

Anyone have any experience, or knowledge, about using the 8330 Curve's ability as a tethered modem with Acer's Aspire One 8.9" netbook that uses the XP Home Windows operating system with Intel's Atom processor and a 160 GB hard drive and an external DVD/CD reader drive?

 

My Alltel 8330's Curve works great with my regular Compaq laptop, but it's aging and I'm considering this little well-reviewed Acer Netbook.

 

Thanks in advance!

USB tethering should work with any Windows 2000 / XP / Vista.

Thanks for your feedback...and, yes, the Blackberry desktop software does work with the new Acer Netbook 10, with XP. Installed it and connected with Internet tonight!
