Yes, that's the correct place on the phone.
When I do the modem tethering, I also use the username and password in the dial-up connection box on my laptop.
The initialization string goes into the control panel -> Phone and Modem -> modems -> properties -> advanced -> extra initialization commands.
Finally, one thing I haven't seen mentioned here is to turn off all compression, flow control, etc... do this by right-clicking the modem icon under network and dialup connections, then properties -> general -> configure and make sure all 3 boxes under "Hardware features" are NOT checked.
