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'd say don't use that, get started using wvdial, and wvdialconf read teh man pages for more info on them. after that you can go use flashy X applets for it. the internet wizard worked ok for me tho when i used it
I found a wvdial and installed that. What do I do with that now then, really what I mean is, where do I find the wvdial.conf file? I've still not got the hang of where things install to, and when I run an RPM does it know where to install based on the root?
Just read this as the description of the version of the driver I downloaded:
minor text improvements
device File System support for rpm based distributions is still not complete.
Perhaps this is the problem when I try to install the device to register it.
Is there another way to register it without running an RPM?
Another thing I've noticed is that I don't have any /dev/LT0 at all, so I can't create a link to it. I'm guessing again this is because the registration didn't work properly?
