(Dial-up connection) - adding multi phone numbers per ISP

in Iran we have Dial Up internet , and you know each ISP has at least 5-6 phone numbers , in Windows , I used to add all those phone numbers so when it was busy it automaticly called the other one ...

but in linux red hat , I dont know how to do that.
but you know what pisses me off ? after I try to Activate the connection , it tells it is Busy and I can not Re-dail it , unless I Re-start my computer...
I dont know if it is the same for you too or not..

after it is gets Busy alert , the PC goes forever..and doenst reply anything and after I De-Active the connection and try to Re-connect, ( re - active ) it gives me error 6 and I have to re-start to dail the ISP's number again...

anybody can help me about this ?

"in Iran we have Dial Up internet , and you know each ISP has at least 5-6 phone numbers"

I suggest that you use wvdial. With wvdial you can set up dialer sections with a seperate phone number in each dialer. Here is a wvdial README.
