Believe it or not, network manager can create a dialup connection.
The big thing is specifying the correct modem device. (After making
sure the modem works in Linux...) Before you can create a dialup
connection, you have to add your modem to the hardware list.

I am not running F11 on this machine, so if you need specific
instructions, let me know and I will fire up the laptop.
