I found how I can do PPP.
And I found my mistake:
If you wish, or need, to authenticate using PAP, the changes to this file
are simpler. Just add a line to /etc/uucp/Systems reading:
isp-ppp Any ACU 38400 <telephone number>
If you want to be able to connect to more than one ISP, you can add
additional lines to this file for the other ISPs.
Note: There must be a line feed (LF) character at the end of the line added
to this file. If using a graphical editor, such as the one supplied with
CDE, ensure that the cursor is positioned at the start of the line following
the inserted line before saving the file. If this LF character is omitted,
the aspppd log file will report:
Call Failed: SYSTEM NOT IN Systems FILE"
