It will ask you for your username and password and the DNS servers, which network device (probably eth0 or eth1).
Then, to connect you will run ifup ppp0, to disconnect ifdown ppp0
to check status ifstatus ppp0.

That would be for a simple ADSL modem without a built-in router, right?

I didn't have to do anything like that for my ADSL (which is through a
modem/router).  I just set the router IP address as my default gateway,
and that was it (I run my own DNS servers).  If my ethernet card was
configured by a DHCP server, I wouldn't have even had to set the
gateway, the router would have done that all for me.

Actually, yes, this is what I did with the ethernet dsl modem that Yahoo sent me, no router. If he has a router, the router, once configured, will do everything, of course. Right now I am using comcast cable, and a router (because I married a windows user and we´re sharing the connection...hey, aside from using windows, she´s perfect),
and, of course, once the router was configured,
my box just automagically finds the connection.
