what app do you use..? kppp, wvdial, or what? if it's ok to use console for this small task, I'd suggest wvdial. easy to set up and use, small and works..wvdialconf does all the configuration for you, except for your username/passw and the number to call and wvdial itself calls.

RE:

as i have said, i am fairly new to linux and still trying to overcome the differences from windows,

i simply used the networking facility in system settings, after entering the user/passwd along with the dial up number. but when i try to activate the connection, i get an error 2 message,

if there anything i have to do before trying to create a connection in terms of hardware settings and do you know what an "error 2" is

many thanks

I am a newbie too. Let me share my experience with you. Error 2 is very much irritating. If you escape from that you will then jump into error 8. Better thing is you open consol/terminal and there type kppp and enter. It will print quite a few line as below. (yours may differ)

Then it will popup a dialogue box where you can start a new account and provide the information. Let the DNS and other items be automatic except your username, password and phone number to dial. Then click connect. I hope it should work.
