Another way to make it work is by using linuxconf. I know some people (here and
elsewhere) do not like it, but it works for me every time. Especially for those
ISPs that allow PAP only.

good thing about linuxconf is, that it takes the worry about creating ppp
connections and keeping them alive.

You are using Slackware, so I do not know if they provide linuxconf with their
dist. You can find more details here.
