I tether my m9 to my G1 quite often now!
The catch is...that I rooted my phone. Once I had done that it was silly easy to do. It actually can tether via bluetooth or via a little wifi-hotspot, pretty cool stuff.
heres an article that contains most of the stuff I followed: Five Great Reasons to Root Your Android Phone - Android rooting - Lifehacker
I did use that rooting app that is like...click done. I then installed the latest cyanogen rom (although i dont think you need to if you just want the tethering app).
Shrug, hope that helps ya.

I'd recommend you take a look at PDAnet (PdaNet -- Use your Android as a USB Modem).
I'm an iPhone owner, so I'm not familiar with how well it works on Android phones, but on the iPhone PDAnet is the best option after the tethering trick that got nuked in OS 3.1. Allows (perhaps even *requires* based on the snippet) USB tethering, which is the best option from a battery perspective. It's not free, but I found the iPhone version good enough to cough up for.
