Install pppconfig. Run it as root and answer the questions. You can add yourself as a ppp user in the "Advanced" menu. You will then be able to start ppp with "pon" and stop it with "poff".
That's what I usually do, but for a newbie, wvdial is a handy app. I think it needs ppp installed though. Does it drag it in as a dependency, or is it a separate install scenario. Regards, David Palmer.
