How Do I Enable Dialup in Ubuntu 7.10??

Guys, I've tried to enable dialup through Network Manager and when I use the dialup, it just keeps connecting and I don't get any dial tone. I also installed GNOME-PPP and it fails to connect. I enabled the restricted driver which i think has to do with the dialup driver. Anyway, it's important that I get dialup. What must I do?
