From the Start menu in X, try System Settings > Network. Press "Add" to add a new modem connection.

Good luck!

If you are using kde then you'll find a good howto here and also here but if you are trying from the command line then the command is pppconfig (at least in Debian it is). You need to armed with details from your isp such as their phone # and your login name and password and you will probably have to configure it to use chap/pap authentication.
