You should read the file /usr/src/linux/Documentation/cdrom/ide-cd ... it lists common problems that would cause your CD to not be autodetected.  Are you sure that your CDrom is IDE-ATAPI compliant ... if it's an older CDrom then it may require a special driver.

X is "too big" because your virtual resolution is set higher than your mode (actual resolution).  This is from the "Screen" section of /etc/XF86Config
Modes       "1024x768i"
Virtual     1024 768

For the screen to not be too big, your Virtual resolution must match the resolution your are actually using - 1024x768, 800x600, etc.

Netscape cannot find it's own DNS server probably becuase you have not defined one for your self.
/etc/resolv.conf should contain at least one line like:  nameserver 1.2.3.4  (ask your ISP for the nameserver you should be using)

You should also be issuing some commands besides pppd, like: route add default gw 1.2.3.4
(where 1.2.3.4 is the remote IP address which you should see in minicom - or maybe not?).
