Mandrake 9.2 and Wvdial . Will it work ?

Mandrake 9.2 does not provide a quick access menu for dial-up internet.
I tried to install Wvdial in Linux Mandrake 9.2, but it never worked.

Tried most of the Helpful Hints and FAQ's.
Added Stupid Mode, user permissions , secrets files, options etc..etc..
But the PPP daemon dies with an error related to /etc/hotplug/net.agent: (attached /var/log/messages )

[root@localhost gops]# wvdial
--> WvDial: Internet dialer version 1.53
--> Initializing modem.
--> Sending: ATZ
--> Sending: ATQ0 V1 E1 S0=0 &C1 &D2 +FCLASS=0
ATQ0 V1 E1 S0=0 &C1 &D2 +FCLASS=0
--> Modem initialized.
--> Sending: ATDT3606060
--> Waiting for carrier.
--> Carrier detected. Starting PPP immediately.
--> Starting pppd at Sun Jan 11 22:27:25 2004
--> pid of pppd: 2595
--> Disconnecting at Sun Jan 11 22:27:30 2004
--> The PPP daemon has died: A modem hung up the phone (exit code = 16)
--> man pppd explains pppd error codes in more detail.
--> Try again and look into /var/log/messages and the wvdial and pppd
man pages for more information.
--> Auto Reconnect will be attempted in 5 seconds
--> Initializing modem.
--> Sending: ATZ

The /var/logs/messages had the following errors :

[root@localhost log]# tail messages
Jan 11 22:46:26 localhost pppd[2759]: pppd 2.4.1 started by gops, uid
Jan 11 22:46:26 localhost pppd[2759]: Using interface ppp0
Jan 11 22:46:26 localhost pppd[2759]: Connect: ppp0 <--> /dev/tts/0
Jan 11 22:46:26 localhost /etc/hotplug/net.agent: assuming ppp0 is
already up
Jan 11 22:46:31 localhost pppd[2759]: Hangup (SIGHUP)
Jan 11 22:46:31 localhost pppd[2759]: Modem hangup
Jan 11 22:46:31 localhost pppd[2759]: Connection terminated.
Jan 11 22:46:31 localhost pppd[2759]: Exit.
Jan 11 22:46:31 localhost /etc/hotplug/net.agent: NET unregister event
not supported

What in the world is this net.agent ?
