Help.... Need to set KPPP to auto dial and ISP

I am using Fedora 2 with KDE desktop. My problem is I need to set KPPP to automatically dial the ISP account that has been set up in the KPPP console. Basically I have a kiosk type setup. I have locked down the desktop and all other features.

I am using Mozilla as the viewer and want the KPPP when opened (all users have access) to automatically dial the only ISP account without the need to the user click the connect button or have the ability to change / see the internet settings???? Is this possible, does it have to be done via the console or a script of some sort???

I am very new to Linux and would love one of you gifted people to give a Newbie some help.

Using KDE I would:
* From the "Main popup menu" Choose "System Settings/Network"
* Setup the device for the ISP
* Choose the General tab and select
"Activate device when computer starts"
* Choose the Advanced tab from the Modem Dialup Configuration window
Change Dial mode: to auto

I think that should get things started. There is a way to do it via editing the system configuration files too. Many times that is the only way I have been able to get these things to work.
