do you mean the script which dials to your ISP, or do you mean the script which runs (after connected to ISP) during login?

Have you tried using XISP? You just enter the phone number, username and password. It does the rest so there's no messing around with scripts.

There are linux packages that take care of both dialing and logging into your ISP.  For example debian has a program called wvdial which takes care of the problem you described.  I believe red hat has a similar program.  If you can't run wvdial because of your distribution, you can get the program and see how it works, and work on a script from there.
