RedHat 9 and Modem

I'm a week old with Linux and wondered if anyone can recommend a good HOWTO guide on modem installation and getting the dial up to work.

I've unfortunately got an MDP 3380-W (Aztech) internal fax modem connected to Com3 and I have also a NetComm external m34F which I am also trying to get working on Com1.

I have the dialup ppp0 configured with my ISP details.

I have installed a driver for the MDP 3880 from The driver is hsfmodem-6.03.00lnxt03091800free_k2.4.20_8-1rh.i386.

I figure I'm probably missing something basic cause lack of knowledge.

best and thanks

1) Install wvdial from if you dont have it.
2) In console run this command as root,
wvdialconf /etc/wvdial.conf
3) read the messages to see if your modem is found. Once u find it, it should be simple. Simply edit /etc/wvdial.conf with your isp details.
Hope this helps
