Why are you using a virtual dial-up connection when on the college ethernet? You should be able to set your computer up for DHCP and it should be no problem. Other people more experienced with RH9 could provide more detailed instructions, but thought I'd offer my insight.

i can not use DHCP.because in my college ,the network center send our a dynamic ip ,we should use this ip to connect internet ,my computer is in a subnet,
my college don't allow we use proxy and connect internet by share ,but why the OS say it had detected proxy server ,

So you've taken one IP and split it amongst yourself and others or, at the very least, several computers?

What device do you have splitting the access?
