SuSe 9.2 Kinternet Configuration

I access the internet via a USR 5686 dialup modem, which has stupid mode set by default, and SuSe 9.2 which is set in Smart mode by default. I can connect by any combinations of these settings, except when both are set to smart mode. In this mode, I can switch the modem mode to smart, after a connection is made, but if set before, Kinternet is unable to dial out. I seem to get better performance in smart mode, so I would like to configure Kinternet to use it properly. I think that the problem is that Kinternet is not set to use the ATDT command properly, or that it simply has lost the phone number. Does anyone know specifically what file(s) control this?

Thanks, but all of the files in etc/ppp seen to be for username and password via the various means of connecting. What I need is a file where SuSe keeps the Hayes AT commands. The modem will not even dial out in smart mode.

Thanks, the path that you gave appears to be what I was looking for. My problem now, is that I'm not really sure what to do with it. The following is the configuration of one of my providers:


Since the only help that I have found is from Google, I'm unsure of how to proceed.

Scroll down to 8.10.2. Demand Dialing. It appears to imply that more configuration is required other than to change to "DEMAND='yes'

Does anyone know exactly how to edit this file, or more accurately, whether this is actually the file to edit? All of these files have the same demand status, but there's only a problem when both the OS and Modem are set to smart mode. From the looks of it, I would have thought that it wouldn't dial even in stupid mode.
