How do I get my ppp account setup in Linux ?

I have just got Linux installed on my computer.  I would like to be able to use my ppp account.  I have a US Robotics Sportster 28.8 vi modem that is on COM 2 in DOS.  How do I get it setup ?  Keep in mind I am new to Linux.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.
