I never had any luck with minicom or wvdial.... although, minicom was useful in that I could test the modem while i was troubleshooting.

What distro are you using? The easiest and simplest route for me was to use pppsetup with Slackware. It will ask you some questions and create a script to run. Type "ppp-go" in console and it should connect. It's really easy and light. Obviously, you have to have ppp installed for this to work.
