Can you access the modem at all? Can you dial out with minicom? Can you
cat "ATZ" to the device file (as root)? Are you sure that it's ppp?

No. The BIND update won't help, but it's a major security hole if you've
left BIND up and running. You should apply that patch. I was hit by the
Ramen worm over a dial up connection, so don't pretend (like I did) that you
don't have to worry about security when you have a dial up account.
Hackers looooooooove noodles. :-P
