    If I understand you correctly, all you need is a sample wvdial.conf? Here was the one that I used:

    Code:
    [Dialer Defaults]
    Modem=/dev/modem
    Baud=57600
    Init=ATZ
    Init2=ATQ0 V1 E1 S0=0 &C1 &D2 S11=55
    Phone=703-997-3407
    Username=username
    Password=password
    Obviously, you would change the username/pass/phone#.

    Then all you do is type wvdial in the console (as root) and it will dial.

    you can also use the command
    Code:
    wvdialconf [i]confignamefile[/i]
    which will run a configuration script for you (find your modem etc.) and then put the dialup information in /etc/confignamefile . I suggest that you use the name wvdial.conf as this is the default.

    have fun
