As much as I can see this is only a workaround but please correct me if I'm wrong. What about my earlier suggestions?

KPPP Dialup Tool Download

I am new to Linux. I have a Sprint Wireless card and am trying to use it with Fedora 5, I think it's 5. Anyways I have got a wonderful .pdf file detailing instructions in how to install the card. The problem I have is that I cannot download KPPP dialup tool because I am not on the internet. Is this a tool that should be on the CD? Or is there a place I can go to download the tool and then install it?
My internet issue is the biggest thing, right now, that is stopping me from using Linux full time.
I'm also trying to set up Samba to be used as a server for my Windows clients.

You do realize, that you revived a thread from the year 2004, don't you ?

Anyway, Fedora is now at version 9, you might try to get something more recent...

KPPP is a part of the KDE-desktop environment, I think Fedora is Gnome-centric so I don't think KDE is included on your CD. On the other hand I'm quite sure, that Gnome has KPPP's equivalent, I just don't know its name.

Please open a new thread for your samba specific questions.

yast is the suse package manger, it doesnt matter. yes, i think this is what you had to once upon a time, a very long time ago. but you dont have to, your dialing and pppd starting is happening. are you SURE you have the right password?
