Dial Up Status Indicator

I finally got my modem to work under red hat so this is my first post to linux questions actually using linux!

So question 1 is there a way to set up a dial up status indicator (like in windows) that gives a little display of uploading and downloading?

If you're using KDE as the manager, when you set up the dialer, on the Misc tab there's a check box that says "Dock into panel on connect".
Check it on. That will give the modem lights by the clock.
If you right click that,and select "details", it gives a graph of transmission rates.
