Are you sure that your ISP uses a login script?
Some of them use only PAP or CHAP authentication - password
information is sent with the modem handshaking.

The reason I suspect this is because there is no login prompt when
you dial up using term.  Term should echo to you anything that 
the ISP modem is sending - therefore if they are sending a login
prompt, you should see it on your screen.  If you're not seeing
it, chances are they aren't sending it.

Read up in the handbook on PAP and CHAP and see if that doesn't
resolve it.
