sure that if it is a pnp modem that you use isapnp to set the port and
irq and then setserial to tell Linux about it (usually in
/etc/rc.d/rc.serial wihich is run automatically if you create it and
give it read/execute permission). Before I set up isapnp for my
modem, Linux would dial my ISP, and appear to just sit there (not sure
if it disconnected right away).
If your pap was not set up properly, /var/log/messages should have
mentioned pap authentication failure.
If you are trying to dial into a company machine that uses chap80
(like certain WinNT versions), good luck. I have not been able to get
that to work.
