Easyppp is pretty good, but somewhat primative. You can also just write a
connection script and use any of the the instant dialers like pppon.
There is also gnome-ppp. Can be a pain setting up permissions though.
Like Enlightenment's E-PPPX epplet, but in 5 times the RAM :)

While running X I was able to connect using usernet as configured in
xconfigurator. When I installed GNOME, I tried using the slick ppp
dialup utility and found I could only connect as root. However, when I
ran usernet again as a user, I could connect with no problems. I had
looked for hours for a permissions or path problem but found none. I
saw several questions posted to various newsgroups about this same issue
so I thought I would put my fix out here.
Firstly, the following commands still worked for all users:
After discovering that (thanks to usenet info), I decided to make my own
applet to run ifup and ifdown. It turns out there is a second ppp
applet that comes with GNOME. It is better concealed but it seems to
work for all users. Here's how you get to it:
1. RIGHT click on an open space on the panel (taskbar, whatever)
2. Move your mouse up until "Add applet >" is highlighted.
3. Move your mouse over and down to "Network."
4. Select "PPP Dialer"
An icon will be added to your panel that looks like a play/pause and
stop button. Click on the "play" button and your modem should dial.
Click on the "stop" button and it should disconnect. This is assuming
that you had working ppp in X before installing GNOME.
Hope this helps.
