since you mention ttyS1 and cua1 which in the ibm/microsoft world is
com2, i am assuming you are hooking up an external modem to the second
serial port. you didn't specify modem brand and model. that would
ignore /dev/cua1. it's been depreciated in favor of /dev/ttyS1.
do you get anything in your kernel boot up messages about the serial
ports? did you enable com2 in the bios settings?
are you using a regular straight cable? generally, your computer (at
least for ibm clones) is dte and the modem is dce. what do your modem
lights look like? do you get dtr? do the tx/rx lights blink at any
you may need run setserial (usually from some init file) to adjust the
speed and various other settings.
also, enable debug in /etc/ppp/options. give chat the -v option.
look in /var/log/messages for signs of life (run less +F
/var/log/messages in a spare terminal).
