Before you do that, have you verified that the connection to the telco wiring 
works? The easiest way to do that is to plug a telephone into the socket and 
listen for a dial tone. If you do get a dial tone, is it immediate or does it 
take a few seconds to appear? If so, you can adjust kppp to wait a few 
seconds before attempting to make a connection.

Two other suggestions about configuring kppp: First, enable logging. Second, 
enable sound during the period when the connection is being made.
