you need to use wvdial. Run sudo wvdial then open wvdial.conf with a
text editor and add your username, password, and phone number. There is
a program in Synaptic called gnomeppp that will give you a GUI for
wvdial or you can run wvdial in a terminal. wvdial without "sudo" will
open your dial up connection.
