Netwiz,

I recommend reading the /usr/doc/HOWTOs for PPP and NET-3.  All your answers are there.  Additionally, are you going to masquerade other machines or have a single dial-up?  In any event, the PPP and DIALD packages are essential.  I also recommend implementing one phase at a time (i.e. PPP, then IPCHAINS, then, etc.).  While you're at it, review compiling your kernel.  I personally like KERMIT to send AT commands and test my modem/connection;  SEYON will also work.  I can't provide the exact steps because the situation isn't exact.  You should also consider a majordomo list server.  No frills but a very smart crew awaits your questions 24x7.
