First, make sure the symlink /dev/modem points to /dev/ttyS1. Then, su
to root and fire up "minicom -s", walking through the settings (most
important the Serial Port one). Once setup and you're in minicom, run
"AT&V" to have the modem display it's config.
If that works, then try a simple ATDT5221001 (or whatever your dialup
number is), and see if you can get a plain jane connect out of it. If
you can, then your problems are PPP specific.
BTW - emachines makes many configurations of the hardware -- the super
cheap one I bought a while back has a "normal" modem and a regulat ATI
video card. The next model up had a WinModem and one of thos weird
"shared video ram" thingies. So, YMMV.
