Looking at the message headers, I see you still have to use an inferior OS
to access the internet. We'll have to fix that. 

EZ-1) Let's make sure your modem is there
setserial can be used to check and set ports
setserial /dev/ttyS2
reports settings for equivalent of dos/win COM3
setserial /dev/ttyS2 irq 5
sets it to use IRQ5

EZ-2) if this is a plug-n-play modem, install isapnptools. It's in the
admin section. 37k for quick download and transfer via floppy. I set it up
last week for a zoom 33.6 and it works great.

EZ-3) /usr/doc/ppp has the info you need. Debian ppp setup is easier than
most others. Edit /etc/ppp.chatscript and /etc/ppp.options_out. The pon
command connects, poff disconnects, and plog gives you some status.

Write to me after you look this over and we will try to get you connected.
