net connection problem Please I'm desperate

Got usb adsl on suse 7.1
setup driver to run the usb device and it tells me that it connected.

call my adsl account and it doesn't seem to do much but I think it tried to call it.
try to ping anything on teh net and route doesn't exist
i.e no connection

now I have an eth0 card and I think it is trying to run the net connection
So how do I stop this and make the usbdevfs become the main network carrier if you get my drift.
i know my dns server name but I may not have configured all the files correctly...
