Fritz!Card dsl pp(t)p howto

Hello Everyone,

I have an internal isdn/adsl modem made by AVm, the Fritz!Card (also known as the fcdsl). now I've got the drivers installed on a debian 2.6.18-6-686 machine and the device appears to be functional because the avm Kadslwatch tool for kde shows that the device has a connection and that the line is "trained". I know I have to make a ppp connection but honest to god i have no idea how to do that. from ample google searches I gather that i need a ppoa or a pptp connection but i don't know how to do either. is there anybody here that can take a noob by the hand and show me step by step? listed below are the specs i know, if you need anything else just let me know.

OS: Debian
KDE 3.5.5
fcdsl installed and (appears) functional
provider: Zonnet (netherlands)

(taken from a working sweex modem/router)
virtual circuit: enabled
encapsulation: pppoa vc-mux
atm vpi: 8
atm vci: 48
service catagory: ubr
ip static ip:
ip subnet:
ppp username: xxx@zonnet-basic
ppp password: xxx
ppp disconnect timeout: 0
ppp mru: 1492
ppp mtu: 1492
ppp mss: 1432
ppp lcp echo interval: 10 seconds
ppp echo maximum executive failure: 5
ppp authentication: pap

I hope i provided you all with all the needed information and i thank you in advance for your help (or even reading it).

A link to info about your h/w would be helpful & polite. -- Why should each of us who reads this perform umpteen duplicate searches, when you could supply a link (or 2, or 3)?
