how do I connect to Internet with suse 9.2


I have a speedtouch 330 usb/dsl modem.

(I know it's supposed to be c**p, but I've never had any bother before).

I am trying to connect to the internet, I am using suse 9.2. The following error message is reported.

suse meta pppd (smpppd-ifcfg) version 1.50 on linux
status is disconnected
trying to connect to smpppd
connect to smpppd
status is: disconnected
status is: lurking
pppd[0]: plugin pppoatm.so loaded
pppd[0]: renamed interface ppp0 to dsl0
pppd[0]: Using interface dsl0
status is lurking
pppd[0]: couldn't increase mtu to 1500
pppd[0]: couldn't increase mru to 1500
pppd[0]: couldn't setup demand dialed ppp interface: inappropriate ioctl for device
status is lurking
status is disconnected
pppd[0] died: fatal pppd error (exit code 1)

using yast for setup

I have connection settings from PiPex which are:-
dail up No - 0,38
primary + secondary DNS - 158.43.240.4 / 158.43.240.3
vpi/vci - 0/38
framing - vc/mux
protocol - pppoa


Any help would be much appreciated, very new to linux but keen to learn.
any tips on good books to buy would be useful. thanks
