I can't connect to the internet


I have just installed Redhat9 on a laptop and taken windows off. I want to connect to the internet. I don't want to network to any other computers in the house. I just want to use my internal modem to dial into my freeserve account but am having problems trying to do this. Can someone please tell me what to do? Also can anyone recommend a better isp to use.
Thankyou all.

Hi!

From the "Start" menu (or whatever it's called) in X try "System Settings > Network". Can you see your modem there? If you do, you can configure it with "Edit". If you don't see it, try "Add".

Good luck!
Martin
