Here are numerous articles on the subject, the most important is make sure you have a program called kppp installed.

Please don't use Red Hat 9 -- it is about 4 years old and completely unsupported. You're really better off downloading or ordering of a cheap CD of something more modern -- I would suggest maybe the latest release of Fedora or Ubuntu. They'll have nicer tools for setting your modem up, too.

Also, please post what kind of modem you have as it will help us help you.

I suggest you to get newest ubuntu version by shipit.

it usually delivers in 2 or 3 weeks, although it is said to take 4-6 weeks.
I hope you enjoy your linux experience.


connection, model
