While trying to establish PPP connection as per the PPP_HOWTO, I'm able to connect to my ISP (at least, that's how it looks/sounds like), using minicom (or even seyon). The magic string "CONNECT 31200/ARQ/V34/LAPM/V42BIS" appears, I can login/passwd and the mystery string "~y}#.!}!}....." also appears. The ifconfig & route outputs also look OK:
darkstar:root:/dosc/linux> ifconfig

BUT I STILL CAN'T GET ONTO INTERNET !!! If I try to ping sunsite.unc.edu (as per the HOWTO), I should be able to do so but I am not.
darkstar:root:/dosc/linux> ping sunsite.unc.edu
ping: unknown host sunsite.unc.edu
darkstar:root:/dosc/linux> cat /etc/resolv.conf
domain usinternet.com
nameserver 205.219.138.11

I'm running Slackware 3.0 on Cyrix_166 using USR Sporster Voice 33.6 PnP Fax Internal on Com2 (/dev/cua1).
Please help. (I may be very close but still not there)

You routing table does not look OK to me. The '...ppp0' line says that there is a way to 208.132.190.104 with no gateway via your ppp0 device. There should be a default route with gateway 208.132.190.104:

route add default gw 208.132.190.104
