You can just use KPPP that comes with KDE and it automatically configures the dial-up modem and connects to the net. Meanwhile, is you modem internal or external? Beacuse it is easier to configure an external modem.

not really, for my modem, which is a connexant HCF modem, i had to get drivers, so it really depends on the modem. Do you know the company that made it? Sometimes the company makes linux drivers, but not many. and like UltimaGuy said, is it internal, or external?

if the modem is conexant check there web page, they develope drivers for linux for some modems, onr tip if you don't know where your modem is, in which tty i mean, use kppp and in device keep switching ttys until in query modem you get a respond. and it's better to setup the bios as a plug n play aware os to "no" so the resources of the devices you have are managed by the motherboard. goodluck everybody
