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.

I had seen an entry like "rmodem" in the options file. I think it may not be a generic modem because it was not detected using kudzu. When I installed reliance, it would not let me use KPPP as it had changed "options" file in /etc/ppp and created /root/.ppprc file which has to be changed to enable you to use KPPP. But I am not able to configure Reliance to run it as non-root.
I don't understand all the questions. The first question is a valid one which I would restate. CAN you use the rconnect function from a user account? I can only use it under root (yes it works, downloadable from relianceinfo.com). Why is this and is it modifiable at all? I have had to create a script to carry out the function of logging a terminal in as root and then placing the rconnect command, which is a pain in the @$$. Hope someone has had an experience with this. Thanx for u'r time. :0).
Ignorance is not really bliss ... I thought Reliance did not ship any drivers for linux. Perhaps I should get hold of a Reliance Mobile and check out the connectivity. Hope I can provide some input here.
