In Slackware type "pppsetup" in a console. It will ask for info, enter it, type ppp-go and you're done. This is the only distro I'm familiar with, but I would imagine others have similar utilities. If you really want to go old school, use Lynx or Links as a browser.

There is a program you most likely already have called wvdial. The setup program for it is called 'wvdialconf'. The setup program produces the /etc/wvdial.conf file.

Here is a web page explaining how to run it.

This page shows the man page for the wvdial program itself.

And this page explains the configuration file. The wvdial program will use auto detection and produce many of the entries automatically.
