How to create a dial-up connection


I am using Opensuse 11.3
In windows, I can create a new network connection , choose broadband network, create and copy onto desktop, so that I can dial up to my internet service provider.
In linux, how to do that?

To make an Internet connection
1.
Open Network Connections

2.
Under Network Tasks, click Create a new connection, and then click Next.

3.
Click Connect to the Internet, and then click Next.

4.
Choose one of the following:

If you already have an account with an Internet service provider (ISP), click Set up my connection manually and then click Next.

If you have a CD from an ISP, click Use the CD I got from an ISP and then click Next.

If you do not have an Internet account, click Choose from a list of Internet service providers (ISPs) and then click Next.


5.
From your choice above, click one of the following:

Set up my connection manually

If you are connecting to your ISP using a standard 28.8 Kbps, 56 Kbps, or ISDN modem, click Connect using a dial-up modem, click Next, and follow the instructions in the wizard.

If your DSL or cable modem ISP connection requires a user name and password, click Connect using a broadband modem that requires a user name and password, click Next, and then follow the instructions in the wizard.

If your DSL or cable modem ISP connection is always on and does not require you to type a user name and password, click Connect using a broadband connection that is always on, click Next, and then click Finish.
