    IMHO huawei bm338 is a usb wifi adapter.

    you should download a ubuntu live-cd.
    You can try ubuntu without installing on the hard drive. The live-cd doesn't install on the hard drive, it only runs until you reboot your pc.
    Just boot ubuntu and see if it works.

    you're running a dual-mode device.
    Maybe you can mode-switch the usb device into a modem.
    But I don't know anything about doing that switch
