ppp0 problems at start up

In my system I just added in a new network card so it would connect with my DSL modem. I was able to configure the DSL using the set up in RedHat. But now when I boot up the system it gets to starting up the ppp0 and it just freezes. And I was wondering if there was a way around it because i might have my setting wrong.

Thanks, NeoSpawn =^_^=

Boot into your system using installation disk or something or you could try doing ctrl + C when it freezes during boot sequence. Once you are logged in you should remove ppp0 device by going to Main menu > System Tools > Network device control > Configure > Delete.
Once this is done, configure a new DSL connection by going to Main Menu > System Tools > Internet Configuration Wizard. That should fix the problem.
