Problem using minicom to connect to ISP

I am tyring to use minicom to connect a dial-up
PPP connection to my ISP, Qwest. The local dial-up in
Dallas is actually owned by Concentric.

Anyway, when I go into minicom and I type
ATDT 9723750501
I connect and then it presents me with a login.

I enter my login and password and it says that the
login failed.

I called Qwest and they said that they dont support
Linux and say that I cant use their service from a terminal.

This seems like a buncha crock to me. There has to be
a way to configure dial-up service with Qwest on my Linux

Can someone please help?
