Unhappy Broadband in Linux? newbie need help..

Hi everyone,

I'm a newbie in Linux.I had just install Red Hat 9 on my Pentium 4 box. After some hassle and "try n error" installation, now I have both Windows XP and Red Hat 9 running properly on my system using GRUB as bootloader. The problem is when i want to connect to the Internet using adsl connection. I've followed all the procedures in System Tools>Network Connection Wizard but my computer still can't connect. Then I tried using the terminal command. I typed "adsl-setup" and follow the steps. After answering all the question with correct infos that I got from my ISP, my system still can't connect. So, can anyone from this forum give me a hand to solve the problem? Thank You!

*My modem is Aztech ADSL305E
*NIC is D-Link BFE-xxx 10/100 adapter (detected by the system as eth0)

Thats not nearly enough information. "Ive tried and it doesnt work" will not get you anywhere.

Tell us step by step what you did and what info you put in. Then tell us what happens, in detail.
