i use minicom mostly to connect to internet via my modem (i like to do things
manually to be sure that they are really going as i want them to), and to get
open a ppp-connect, one should use (at leasti this is what i believe) pppd. 
minicom sets up a connection, but only a terminal.

i'm not sure if you ever got to the point where it asks you username and passw
with minicom. anyway, what happens after atdt<your isp number>? what does your
minicom say?
