do a symbol link as root if /dev/modem does not exist
# ln -s /dev/modem /dev/ttyS4
ttyS4 is your modem on COM5
Get the info from your ISP, such as primary and secondary DNS, Gateway IP
address, Authentation method (Chap, Pap), phone number, etc.
As non-root try to run kppp or rp3-config and put all your info there.
When you are ready to hook to the internet use kppp or rp3.
You might run into permission problems, (ie. it works well as root but I
cannot run it as non-root)
If you are connected and there are communication issues, post your
communication logs here on the news group.
