I guess we need more information. What service are you dialling up to? Have you tried dialling up to the same service from another machine ? Could it be that the service is disconnecting you?
How have you set your system up so far (modem init strings? connect scripts ?) Which documents and HOWTOs have you read ?
Please tell us anything you think is relevant, and we'll try to help.

A good starting point would be to read some of the HOWTOs (which Frank mentioned) that you should have available with whichever distribution you have installed. If you can't find them on your HDD after installation (which distribution did you install?) point a browser at:
http://www.linux.org/docs/index.html
Some of the HOWTOs you may want to read are the ISP-Hookup-HOWTO, the Modem-HOWTO and the PPP-HOWTO.
Some of the mini-HOWTOs could be a help too, such as the ISP-Connectivity mini-HOWTO.
The Linux Documentation Project is a vast and extremely helpful resource.
Linux is still best approached as a system where all maintenance, fixes and enchancements alike, are done by you. It's the sort of system that from time to time you need to get your hands 'under the bonnet' with (uh.. translated as 'under the hood' for those stateside).
Think of your problem like this: you have a unique opportunity. A problem has occurred which you have the opportunity to fix, and in the process you will learn loads about linux. What could be better than that?
