RedHat 9 PPP connection?

Just installed RedHat 9 yesterday...everything went smooth, had it up and running in less than 60 minutes. However is there any type of dialer to connect to the internet. I went through the internect connection settings...set everything up and clicked the ppp connection to activate it but I can't locate anything that will let me dial into my ISP, or is it when you click activate it supposed to dial it? When I click it it just sits there until the point where I cancel it but then it says active after that? Confused.

You should be able to find the internet connection wizard if you launch Nautilus. There is a menu item "Start Here". You should be able to find it from there in the networning area.
