KPPP settings are saved where?

Among my problems with my ppp modem connection is that I can establish a connection with wvdial using /dev/ttySHCF0 as modem device, but I have not been able to establish a connection with kppp, at least after messing around with the Drake config center in Mandrake 9.1. Mandrake would recognize my Winmodem, but stop the configuration with the message that this modem is unsupported. Somehow this must have changed some of the kppp settings, and besides starting kppp and checking the settings through the GUI and don't know what else might have been messed up. Any hints?

I did establish a symbolid link between /dev/modem and /dev/ttySHCF0. I can query the modem under kppp and get some strings back that identify the modem correctly. But when I dial it stops and says no carrier can be detected. No such problem under wvdial...

I surely must be overlooking something!

Thank you for any help!!!!
