Dial-up Internet Configuration

I can't quite seem to find an easy "how to" to set up a dial up internet connection in Redhat 9

I am using GNOME, and when I booted up it seemed to find the modem all right. How do I set up an internet connection? I've tried but I don't think I am doing it correctly as it dials but then just hangs up after a few secs.

I'm very sorry to be posting such easy questions, but I don't have a clue how to do this.

Many thanks

minicom and pppd are needed for dialup I believe.

I cannot walk you through this but it is possible, I had dialup working in Slackware with a 1.2.1 kernel some years ago.

you will need to make a script with the normal ATDT(ISPPHONENUMBER)
init strings, and password/username script for minicom to use, once a connection has been established pppd is used for network data control I believe.

'man minicom'
'man pppd'

if you do not have theese install them.
also Ive heard of kppp or something.
