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.
