I'll try :)
- so here goes:
I've been using xandros on my eeepc701 for awhile and found it cumbersome, to 
be honest (far outdated kde, crippeled konqueror, ridiculous software 
repo...), so I replaced it with debian lenny, and all is ok :)
but that's not the question, in essence.
so, as to the modem/kppp issue, I can say from memory (long time ago, that I 
last used a serial modem...) that I had often problems with kppp.
I tried wvdial then (which comes with a handy autoconfig utility: wvdialconf),
which always worked perfectly, so I never went back to kppp.
you may want to give it a try, it should be available for all distros you 
there is even a qt frontend (qt3) for it, afaik (qtwvdial).
