The following (modified) scripts have been used successfully for dialup to InCh with the Linux OS (kernel 2.0.35) using the Slackware distribution 3.5.
They are for PAP (Password Authentication Protocol) for a PPP session.
There is no echo to the screen, but if you are not disconnected after 30 seconds - you know you're in (try "telnet inch.com" [in a new terminal window] to verify).
Don't forget to edit in your username, password, InCh phone number where needed.
Set the two executable scripts chmod 755.
Set the rest to chmod 600.
