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.

First, thank you tcaptain. I almost could not find your reply when turning on the computer this morning
My question is: after installing the driver for the modem, and using kppp to query the modem, the port is open, but I got the message "modem does not respond". Has anybody encoutered this problem before? I just want to know whether it is a problem of the device driver, or I did not set the correct parameter in kppp. Many thanks
Yeah, it is the problem of the driver. After installing a new one, I got "modem ready".
But I still could not dial it out. I am now in Italy and we use a unique dialing number 7020001033, without the country code or local code. In the KPPP, I just add this number and unclicked "use dialing rules" and unclicked "wait for tone before...". But I got some ppp problems when "logging on". Are there any setting I should do in KPPP? Thanks again.

there's different stuff you have to do by country i guess,
so you shouldn't be asking me. but, there is also
ppp-go and wvdial, either of which may let you get your
dial-up working, since they both work in different ways.
they are both terminal based, not point and click apps.
