configure modem

I have a fresh installation of Fedora Core 1.0. I'm trying to configure my modem by using the Internet Wizard. At the end of the procedure I get the following message:

error set MRU value to <n> for negotiations
see pppd(8) for more options.

Any suggestions?

consider buying an external serial modem.
I know thats not what you asked, but it will solve your problem forever, regardless of distro.
