that's not simple to explain.
Look inside RHat docs and read PPP Howto.

1st make sure that your modem is supported by linux, "Query" ur modem and if its doesnt tedected u will have 2 make it an linmodem which isnt 2 hard, also i have noticed that wit some modems it dependson weather its internal or external (well on my linux box anyways). If its detected just run KPPP and u will b set
