wvdial help

Hey, I've just reinstalled red hat linux 7.2 using the server installation. I am trying to use wvdial to set up an iunternet connection with my external modem. I ran wvdialconf /etc/wvdial.conf and edited wvdial.conf with emacs with my connection infromation. When i run wvdial it dials, and enters my username/password but then it just can't start a ppp connection. It just stalls at "Starting pppd at *current date.*" I'dd really appriciate any help. Thanks alot, Everyone here has been very helpful.

Try using kppp on KDE, and let it try detect your external modem etc. and just fill in your necessary details etc. phone number, username...
