questions after upgrade of RH 7.3

Hello All:

After upgrading RH 7.3 to a newer version of 7.3 --including the kernel, I have a few questions.

I can no longer access my modem. Is Marv Stodolsky still the man for Linmodem drivers?

I use kde. And when I boot up I get alot of old windows popping up from a session a LONG time ago. How do I fix this?

Simularly, when I begin the process of accessing the internet through kppp, I get a window w/ "question(2)" rather than w "question" (--the one that asks for su pword).
How do I fix this? I believe the previous question might also solve this one, but just to make sure....

Lastly, I'd like to upgrade to RH 9 Legacy (from RH 7.3) before jumping into Fedora Core (Legacy at first, then the current stable release).
Any pointers?

Looking for all relevant replies to all or part of what I need.

I have never had any sucess with a RH upgrade not breaking software. Best bet: uninstall the modem drivers, and recompile them from source. DO NOT USE A RPM BINARY.
