Thank you. This seems closer to a solution than anything else I've run into.
However, I don't think the "pon" is finding my modem. Is there a way to ping a modem
or otherwise to ascertain where it is connected? Again, the computer is an eeePC, and
the modem is an external USB modem.

I use pppconfig to setup my dial up.
Open a terminal and type sudo pppconfig enter password and fill in.
Leave "provider" alone, and when finished in terminal type pon
Type in terminal poff to disconnect.
External usb modems I have tried are (usually) found at ttyACM0
if modem isn't auto-detected and you need to set it manually.
Hope this helps.
