Can I Run A Windows Based Dial Up Program With Mandrake 9.2

Iam installing mandrake 9.2 and I have my dial up service with verizon. The progam for configuring the dialer is a windows based program with internet explorer 6 custom compiled and included on the installation disk. The program requires a windows environment. Can I use this dial up program with mandrake even though it requires internet explorer 6. ?

well, man, you could try with Wine or WineX emulation but I don't think you'll get any success.

Why don't you set it up under windows, then write down the necessary data (phone number, username, ....) and set a connection under linux with kppp ?
