Stupid PPP question??

I recently installed RedHat 5.1. I have a Cirrus Logic 33.6 PNP modem. With X-Windows, I set up a PPP connection to my ISP, it dials up the number, waits a few minutes, then my modem clicks like it disconnected and I can't get a connection. Does anyone know why this is? My friend said it's not my modem because if it was, I wouldn't be able to dial up.

Put
      DEBUG=yes
in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-ppp0.
Attempt to dial up again.  Then look in /var/log/messages.

PS: It's "X" or "The X Window System", but not "X Windows".  See "man X" for more information.
