How do I convert a Windows Dial-up Script to use in Mandrake 8.1

I'm a newbie so go easy (explain how things are done)...

Using a terminal style login (kppp) I can dial-up to my university and login to the system. After typing ppp, I can ping the host just fine. However, I can't gain webaccess?

In windows I just use the "Dial-up networking" program and specify that it use a script that was provided by my school. The script is below.

proc main

waitfor "sername:"
transmit $USERID
transmit "^M"

waitfor "assword:"
transmit $PASSWORD
transmit "^M"

waitfor ">"
transmit "ppp"
transmit "^M"


How do I configure my kppp to do the same as above so that I can access the web also? Do I need to use something besides kppp, if so what and how do I do that?

I am using Mandrake 8.1 and a USR CP5610 hardware modem, that is fully supported and functional for anything new than kernal 2.2.
