Question SuSE Modem troubles


I am so confused. I just got my new creative external modem. SuSE recognizes it just fine (unlike my winmodem), and lets me configure my ISP, but when I try to connect via KInternet, the log tells me this:

SuSE Meta pppd (smpppd-ifcfg) Version 1.00 on linux
We are disconnected
trying to connect to smpppd
connect to smpppd
We are disconnected.
We are lurking
pppd: Plugin passwordfd.so loaded.
pppd: Local IP address (IP address here)
pppd: remote IP address (IP address here)
pppd: Terminating on signal 15
We are disconnected
pppd died: pppd received a signal (exit code 5)

I am guessing maybe a config problem? Problem is, I know diddly about Linux... this is my first real time playing with it. Can anyone tell me, in approximate layman's terms, what I can do to get this sucker up and running?

First:
Make the timeout on the connection to "0". If nothing:
Signal 15 is:
"The link was terminated because the peer is not responding to echo requests."

Have you tried "wvdial"?

enable "stupid mode" in the yast2 modem setup. pap only, not pap/chap, check dip switch settings on the modem.

Actually, I just figured it out... I had it set to dial on demand, and I have a dial up modem, which I guess is a no no... Cause I'm writing to you from Linux now. Wooo hooo! Thanks, though... I was getting a little worried.
