Thumbs up

((back in M$ graphics mode))

Yessss.......... I'm in!! ajaja
you don't know how happy I am...
it was really hard to get the internet with just a minimal distro like zipslack.. (little, yes...but so powerful)

Don't gonna tell now all the stuff about winmodems and hard ones -you know what I'm talking about-
Just want to tell that here is really difficult to find a hardmodem... I only found one place where to buy one (a new external one) .. but it was so expensive .... when I get the money, they told me "you want it, but we dont have that hard anymore ..and we don't know if they're gonna arrive again.." ... finally I found one of second hand..
(an used and expensive one) ... and blablabla...
..and then..to make it work! zipslack doesn't have GUI ... all at the "old fashon" console style... (that's what I most like of it) ... so, people was very important (yet so important!!) to show me and teach another people there is an alternative to win stuff.

masand: thanks a lot... I have learn some useful things about configurin'
a connection... you're wonder how I get my isp's dns numbers? belive me when I tell you I don't remember... it's been a long time since I got'em, when I begun searching things to connect with slack.. guess I found such numbers in the net..

gbonvehi, I can't belive it: searching in the other side of the word, in a foreing language, an unknown gave me the answer... and he's from the same country than me!! simple incredible... //gonna stay in touch.

wanna say thanks to ALL the people in here... always traying to help... and you do!!

and for last.. xushi.. no bad feelings ..maybe it was just a misunderstanding.

I love U all.

for slackware

rc.bind as u mentioned is enough
