Your ISP may use PAP authentication.... this involves adding your
password to the pap-secrets file in your /etc/ppp directory. I
learned this from the generic "how to set up with linux" file at my
Internet Service Provider's home page.

You can confim what happens using the debug button on RH PPP (or KPPP
for that matter).. it will show the response from the modem and all...

Good luck!
