A Basic Terminal Connectivity Question

I installed Suse 9.0 last night and it automaticly detected my winmodem. I must have lucked out, it's detected the I/O and I believe the IRQ I can't check for sure because I'm in school right now.

All I need to know is the command or program to use so I can test it and connect to the internet.

I'm running Gnome and I checked last night and minicom isn't installed so that's currently not an option.

Help will be appreciated.

Should I try something like wvdial, or kppp? I actually went out and bought a full version of SUSE from compusa so I guess what I'm trying to find out is, does anyone know if there's a way to do it without playing command line karate? Maybe an installed connection gui goodie?

You are likely using KDE if you're SUSeing. See if you can install an applet on your taskbar for that. I know that Gnome has modemlights. Dunno the KDE version. To get connected as user, you may have to add your user account to the ppp group.
