Well, they say misery loves company, so I thought I'd let you 
know that I'm waiting to see some answer to this one myself!  I
can't get the damn thing to dial either, and haven't been able
to with three different installations.  All have different modems,
and ports, etc, but on all of them I have to use 'term' mode and
manually dial/login to my ISP.  There is some magic involved to
make it work apparently, and its not intuitively obvious to the
most casual observer... :)  Linux PPP, with all its problems with
it being a moving target is far superior to this as far as I can
see.
