Yeah. I had to do exactly the same when I was using Slackware :(
In Debian all appropriate files and scripts are already set up
for you:

those are /etc/ppp.options_out and /etc/ppp.chatscript

There should be no comments in those files!

Make sure to add in /etc/ppp.options_out the following options:

user Larry.Gariepy and (if you ISP uses PAP authorization) edit
/etc/ppp/pap-secrets  to add the following line:
Larry.Gariepy   *   <your real password>

After that start ppp with "pon" .
