MEPIS 6.0 Recognizes modem, but says "no dial tone"

Mepis 6.0 recognizes my internal modem and will try to dial ,but then says "no dial tone". I am using KPPP. Any ideas on how to get this working?

I'm not sure but check if there is an option like Pulse or Tone dialing. Depending on your phone central it must be pulse or tone dialing.

Excuse my English

When you run your kppp go at:
Configure -> Modem -> New... an then on modem tab check/uncheck Wait for dial tone before dialing
