When I dial my isp with dip I log in with user and passwordand then it spits out my dynamic ip address.  At this pointI press enter and I get spurios characters about 5 lines andthen a disconnet. I have also tried pppd with a chat scriptbut my isp crashes at pap.

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....
