(So far behind in this to ) I still have dial up.I.S.P.Netzero The best I can tell is netzero.deb is installed java is installed. I have tried to set the manual configuration every way possible still no connection. Have check some things in the terminal come up cannot find file. Can`t

Maybe you should use a different dialer program, kppp for example. There is an old thread where I wrote a step-by-step guide how to configure kppp to get it work. The thread is here

I think netzero will only work with sun-java's java and not with the the open source java that debian based distro,s now use.
