Hi John,
try opening a terminal type in   sudo pppconfig and enter your password 
when prompted.
You should now be able to fill in details, leave the  "Provider" section 
as is. It may not be able to find which port your modem is connected to, 
so enter it manually. Serial external modems are usually workable, but 
if you have a "winmodem" you may have problems, also some usb modems are 
software driven and will also give you headaches.
when it's all filled in connect by opening a terminal and type   pon
Disconnect by typing   poff
Hope this helps
Take Care
