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've installed the drivers for the winmodem, but I can't find wvdial or wvdialconfig to ruN?

you should have the rpm for wvdial on your distro if it's not installed already. probably wvdial-1.42.i386.rpm or something

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?

? you don't run it.. it's a configuration file. unless your confusing it with wvdialconf, whcih writes that file...

and wel... it kinda depends on what goes wrong if it doesn't work doesn't it? but the best general advice if something doesn't work is to watch tv for a while and come back later

Ok, so the wvdial RPM that I installed, that's installed the wvdialconf that I run which creates wvdial.conf which I edit with username/password/phonenumber?
God I'm dum

I tried installing the RPM and I got an error about making the devfs executable or putting it in the standard location.
I don't know where this devfs is? Got any ideas?

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?
