newbie using PPP

Im trying to conect my notebook to the net (a dial up) with FBSD4.8 using PPP.
Ive set the device card0 seeing that Im using pccard modem. When I open the term it opens and flips back to PPP.
Is this cause the card is not compatible?
Or am I not configuring the device corectly?
I havent touched pppd configuration as Ive understood this is not nescesary if using ppp this way?
Has anyone got path to a tutorial about devfs naming.
thanks

    Assuming you have the right device for the card, and it's actually being treated like a modem by the device file, and thus the software, I think the problem is in not modifying the config file.
    I set it up so I can just ppp -background isp, or whatever, because I set the phone number and settings in the config file. Read through them, they'll let you know what to do.
