If you are connecting in Kies, then most likely you are in "Kies" mode. I haven't used GB or FroYo in a while but i think you can change that in menu>settings>applications>usb utilities (i might have the exact location wrong, it's a little different on every phone/version). You can set the mode it connects when you plug it in. "Prompt on connection" would be your safest bet.
As long as you have the proper drivers for your phone and the ADB tools installed, enable USB debugging and then plug in your phone. Your phone shouldn't prompt you for a connection, but the drivers should install. Then just follow the rest of the instructions as written.
