You need to provide more information. What happens when you install the driver: are there any error messages? What happens when you try to dial up with kppp? What device ("/dev/whatever") is kppp configured to use?

Suggest you post the output of "lsmod" to see if the modem driver is actually loaded.

Set the authentication setting to PAP/CHAP in the kppp dialog.
