What distibution d'ya use ??
You can configure the modem lights by right-click on it and choose preference, then you can setup the command there for connect and disconnect, click advance and change the LCK...modem with LCK..ttyS0 ( assuming that ur modem connected to com1 ( in ms-dos ). To get connected to the net simply click the left-hand button ( also for disconnecting ).
Before u do configuring it be sure to know how to connect to internet according to ur distribution. In redhat, after u configured the internet connection, all u have to do is just change that LCK..modem with LCK..ttyS0 as mentioned above, nothing more just click the left button and you get connected. But if you use Slack, it's a different story, u have to change files permission related to ppp, i.e pppd.
Hope it helps !!
