Question Why do I end up with kppp daemon has all of a sudden failed

I purchased the latest version of mepis direct from as a birthday present for myself. unfortunately I have ended up with 2 errors thanx to the daemon namely error 1 and error 2 which comes up on the screen after I have clicked connect and you can hear the modem dialling but then it stops at the handshake.

I originally tried using it with a winmodem but it didn't work in detecting the correct port so I purchased a serial modem in the hope of fixing the problem and no such luck.
Iam very disappointed as I really hate using xp so my temp solution at the moment is frustration thru using mandrake 9.0.

It would make my home a happier place if someone could help me thru this as my wife has been really unhappy not having the setup the way it should be.

thanx for your patience in reading this

I have been using MEPIS since 2004.04, & I don't believe I ever heard of "mepis direct" before.

Here are my Googles:

How about a link?

What kind (i.e. how fast) of a 'Net connection do you have? -- Why didn't you just download it?
