dial up setup was "How do I dial using external modem"

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.
Take Care
