Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

you configured the com port when you changed the 3 to a 4 in the /etc/init.d/serial file, so i'd say don't touch that part in the dial-up connection utility...
okay, your /dev/modem link is also pointing to the wrong com... so you need to change that... this is the last thing you need to do before you try to dial-up your ISP once again... just become root and type this command:
(Then there was the COM ports 0 to 9 I think. then at the last one was listed as (dev/modem). COM0 was checked by default.) I tried every combination attempts. Who knows.
And before this, I edited the Gedit like you told me to.
Then I started filling out my Connection name user id, password, access# (BTW, is it in this format? 123-1234 or 1231234??), PAP.
Then clicked on Test Connection and failed.
I followed yuor exact instructions. And the last command detected or was pointing to ttyS4 like you said.
I did this before BTW. Or maybe I should of rebooted??
maybe i should go out and buy an external modem, what do you think?
I've noticed that on the website were I downloaded the driver, it said below that this is just a BETA version and not supported ny US Robotics.
