Question ISDN and Mandrake 9.2


I am a newbie and want to install and external ISDN modem to my Mandrake 9.2 installation. During the installation, it asked me to configure the ISDN connection and I indicated the external ISDN modem and provided the number, logon, and password. I am unable to find the ISDN access application or ISDN Dial access option.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. I have a Aethra TPQ 2033 ISDN Network Termination modem using the 9 pin serial connection on Com1. It works great with my Windows XP Pro, Windows 2000 Pro, and Windows 2000 Server. I have several PC's on a network and wanted to test Linux so on one PC I have set a multiboot environment with Windows 2000 Pro, Windows XP Pro, Linux 10 Fedora, and Mandrake 9.2

Thank you in advance for any assistance you can provide me.

have u tried kppp? just open a terminal and type
kppp &
setup ure account and see if it the right modem since
com1 = /dev/ttys0
com2 = /dev/ttys1
and so on

if kppp doesnt work, then f*** not even sure if it supports ISDN..get this nifty litttle thing called 'ppp' from

to set it up, open a terminal and type
ppp -s

to dial

ppp -c

to disconnect

ppp -d

configure your ISDN modem as "normal modem" (not ISDN) and use kppp, it works!
