Angry can't connect through ppp in redhat 9.0


i have redhat 9.0 and i cannot retrieve any page from the internet. i am using a dial up connection through ppp.

the problem is that while i am using mandrake 9.1, my internet connection is so smooth.

the configurations for both redhat and mandrake are the same. what seems to be the problem iin my redhat?
