You have KPPP - a dialer program in Red Hat Linux, one similar to Dial-up Networking in Windows.

you'll need to set up your connection at 2 places..

1. Main Menu -> System Settings - > Internet Configuration wizard and

2. Main Menu - > Internet -> KPPP -> setup

This is with regard to RH 9...the location may be different for RH pls check that out...

Now just enter all data related to your ISP just the way you do it in Windows...and use KPPP to dial in to your ISP..

Hope that helps...
