Drop the minicom stuff. Use pon for dialing and poff for disconnect.
First edit /etc/ppp.options_out and /etc/ppp.chatscript to match your
needs. Don't forget the debug option.

So you use a script in a terminal window on win95 and NT ?
Then edit /etc/ppp.chatscript and use pon.
If you use X, then you also may want to give xisp.deb a try. Get it from
ftp://18.104.22.168/pub (for a recent version).
