The problem sounds like you don't have ppp  support compiled into the kernel. Type pppd and if it gives you gibberish then do the following.

Type :

pppd defaultroute /dev/cua1 connect 'chat "" ATDT(provider phone no.) ogin: login_id word: your_password '

This should log you in and start ppp. If it does not then you may need to recompile ppp support into the kernel. Let me know how you go....
