In my feeble efforts to become more proficient I realised that eventually I am going to need to activate my modem (ttyS0) from the command line, and take away my GUI safety net
I am ashamed to admit that I cannot do it.
I have tried about a bazillion combinations of man, ifup, ppp, pppd etc etc
I believe that I am missing something basic, but I've hit a wall.
If it is relevant I had to use kppp to get the modem working in RH9 and FC1/gnome because I could not get the Gnome dial-up thingy to work.
Thanks for any tips,
