Ok, then why not adopt some default standard (Say PAP like windows does)
that you MAY CHANGE but for newbies, asks them what the phone number is,
what their password is and username and then sets the darned thing up to
act like Win95 does on a PPP login so that any ISP that supports Windows
DUN by default (this is about 100% of US providers and probably a very
large percentage of the rest of the world) also supports Debian in ITS
default configuration.

Just have the system ask "Would you like to set PPP up like Win95 DUN" or
something and if you say no, it just leaves things like they are.
