The only use for minicom in setting up a ppp connection is to find out what
sort of authentication your isp uses. To set up ppp, run pppconfig, answer
all the questions, and then type 'pon' to start the connection and 'poff'
to end it.

The chat program doesn't use COM ports at all. It just talks to its
standard input and output. pppd sees to it that chat gets connected to the
serial port. You don't need to worry about that, though. pppconfig will
set it all up.
