Redhat 9 - Kppp setup problem

I was going to setup a connection using kppp, but right at the beginning, i checked the box to "not show this dialog box again" when it asked me if i wanted to do the dialog based setup. Now i cant setup a connection using kppp. How do i revert back to original settings so i can uncheck the "dont show this dialog box again," so i can setup a connection?

As root, run kppp in a terminal. That will bring up the dialog box. Just click the setup button, then the new button. It will ask you if you want to use the wizard. This will start the wizard up for you again.

Doesnt redhat have a... "Setup Internet Connection" button right in the .. um.. System folder of the menu? or the Tools folder?


Other than that. Press the button labled "Setup" , which is the middle button on the bottom of my kppp window, and press "New" on the first screen that pops up.

Didnt work

I used "run program." Then typed kppp and checked the "run in terminal" box. The terminal window came up, then the kppp window. I clicked setup, which brought up the kppp configuration box. I hit new. "Create new account" came up. I hit next, but only foreign countries were listed in the menu (i'm in U.S.). It says, "If you click cancel, the dialog based setup will start." So I hit cancel but it goes back to the kppp configuration box again (with the new button). What gives? I shouldn't have hit the "don't show again" box in the first place. How can i get that unchecked again?

Can I uninstall kppp and then reinstall it? If so, how do i do that?
(I download the 3 iso's from
