Heres a copy of my config I used to use with my (painfull) time on BTi.

#################################################################

default:

 #
 # Make sure that "device" references the correct serial port
 # for your modem. (cuaa0 = COM1, cuaa1 = COM2)
 #
 set log connect
 set device /dev/cuaa0
 set log Phase Chat LCP IPCP CCP tun command
 set speed 115200
 set dial "ABORT BUSY ABORT NO\\sCARRIER TIMEOUT 5 \"\" AT OK-AT-OK ATE1Q0
OK ATM0 OK ATW2 OK ATS0=0 OK ATS2=36 OK \\dATDT\\T TIMEOU
T 40 CONNECT"
 set timeout 120

papchap:

 #
 # edit the next three lines and replace the items in caps with
 # the values which have been assigned by your ISP.
 #

 set phone 08440908005 #Surftime daytime number.
 set authname xxxxx at btinternet.com
 set authkey xxxxxx
 set timeout 300
 accept chap
 set ifaddr 127.1.1.1/0 127.2.2.2/0 255.255.255.0
 add 0 0 127.2.2.2

I used this successfully with natd, userland ppp and ipfw.

Hope this helps for the archive ;-)

Si.
