what kind of Linux u using, RedHat, Slackware or others
Try start the X windows, open the Linuxconf, There is a lot of options u can setup your linux. There is a PPP/SLIP/PLIP setup, click and enter your dial up information, phone no,  username, password...etc and click the button to connect or disconnect.

usually enough
edit /etc/ppp/pap-secrets
add
userid      *      password

run
/usr/sbin/pppd /dev/modem connect '"" atdt123456 CONNECT "" ogin: myremoteusrid assword mypassword ' noipdefault lock ip-accept-remote ip-accept-local user userid crtrts


In most cases this is pritty close.  
try man pppd in for explain of parameters

If it works for minicom, check the initstring there
and add it to the chat string
'"" ATZ OK ATDT1235 and so on"
