try using kppp and see if your modem comes up in the list. When installed, almost all do. If you know the name it installed under, you can try using that too "/dev/modem" or whatever it may be called.

Yep that worked great!!! thanks

The only said about using the wizard and i clicked on yes and then by accident checked the box that said don't show this window again :/ now i can't enter the phone number, it can only use the ones that already entered there anyway of reseting kppp? I looked in /home and in /root but there was only one file was there to do with kppp that said something like '5263' within inside.
