internt connection failing on SuSe 9.0 Pro?

hi, im new to linux... just installed it and having a few problems... main one being that i cant connect to the internt... i followed the directions within the original install of SuSe, entered all the connection detaiils, but it wont connect... it dials up, and after a few seconds of communication it disconnects and starts dialling again... anyone got any ideas as to what i have to do to get this resolved?

btw, its an Athlon XP2000+ machine, with an intel based 56k Modem....

thanks in advance...

i don't know if this is any help to you, but i had the same problem on RH 9. i beleive you have an intel chipset based HaM modem??? the modem didn't work in M$ XP neither, so i took it back to the shop, replaced it with the old winmodem, installed the source files & driver. bingo everything is sorted. i think the Ham modem is the prob, not the distro.
