How do I use Chat?


I've been trying to get my dial-up internet going, and while I'm not a stranger to the command line, stuff like internet has been done for me by some thoughtful programmer. Now, I know I need pppd, which needs chat. I want to know how to make chat dial right now, though the man page doesn't make much sense to me yet. Mostly, I want to know how to get it to send a script to a serial port (/dev/ttyS0)

I would really like a "dumb terminal" if I could have one.

You can send stuff to /dev/ttyS0 like this, in a terminal
Code:
tred@vaio:~$ echo "ATZ" > /dev/ttyS0
or like this:
tred@vaio:~$ cat script > /dev/ttyS0
