PengAOL difficulties...

right, I know it's lame but I use AOL, 'cause btopenworld are sueing me - and I am work for them! So, everyplace I go doesn't accept my ISDN connection, seems to only be AOL and Btopenworld that do int he Uk for flat-rate access...So...I'm trying to setup pengAOL on my mandrake 8.2

Found out that by changing the initstring1 in the /etc/pengaol/pengaol.conf file from whatever it was set at (think it was AT&K3) to ATZ (looked in kppp for that's init string for my modem). And I can get to the stage where it says "Finding Provider" I'm wating the modem and it's in a call, but then dies, and the terminal says "unable to inititialise the modem (1)" or "Stopped before connection" <-- well something like that, can't remember now :-p

So...does anyone else know how i can get past that "Finding Provider" part? like what to change? PLEASE HELP! As I can't afford to stay with a loacl-rate ISP any more!
