RHEL4 user - Dialer needed - ISP.com - manual setup required


I'm a new person to Linux and started by getting RHEL4, but the problem is that I can not get the dialer set up. The ISP website said that I needed to install it manually. Can anybody help me out with this? Thanks in advance.

dialer

Hmmm..... Which ISP? AFAIK AOL was not linux friendly. There was a penngy dialer but I never heard of anyone getting it to work.
I used coppernet when I had dialup and it worked fine with Kppp or wvdial. Which are you using? Also, what kind of modem?

^Look at the title^
ISP Website: http://www.ISP.com
Generic Dialer Setup from Redhat
Agere Systems PCI-SV92PP Soft Modem
--PCI Slot 3 (PCI Bus 1, Device 3, Function 0)

Which brings me to a problem I found after playing around with Redhat: it's detecting an Ethernet when I have none, and not detecting the modem.

Edit: I did try to get KPPP on a flash drive and work from there, but the install program would not run.
