I believe that redhat wants to find the cd at /mnt/cdrom. I don't
remember glint too well these days. If I remember right, one view is to
see all the installed packages and the next view is to see the available
packages? Make sure you have the original redhat cd in the drive and
change it /mnt/cdrom in the path. It should mount. If not, you could
just install the rpms (like ppp and others) that make up the dialup stuff
manually. Mount the cd and go to the RPMS directory and install things
like ppp, perhaps a few others.
It would be better to go to a later redhat like 6.2 or perhaps Mandrake.
RedHat 5.2 was great in its time but its kinda dated now.
