Mandrake 9.2 ADSL Alcatel 330 GNOME Went online once, never connected again???

At the risk of Cross-threading - I posed this question on the Network section and no one answered and I'm getting desperate!

I set up my Softtouch 330 Alcatel ADSL modem on my triple-boot system (98/XP/Linux).
Linux works fine, except that the only time I have ever been online was right after I ran the GNOME setup wizard in the Network Configuration section. It dialed up, worked fine.
The next time I went to Network Config to log on my ISP absolutely nothing happened!

I am a Linux Noob of the highest order, but even I can press 'Connect'! :-)

I wouldn't mind connecting even manually (though have no idea how to do so) except I don't know where GNOME puts all the pppd 'bits', etc or how to logon once I find where they are...

Anyone know what I should be checking or doing?

I am happy to type scripts etc (assuming I can grasp them). I just don't know where to start!

Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.

Thread to follow is: - there are also some answers here.

(This holds even if you slightly change the title.)
