I'm having problems getting any sort of internet connection with Linux.
I've installed red hat 5.1 and had no success so now I've got 5.2, same
story, no success. On both occasions I've had messages saying that ppp is
not part of the kernel or something to that extent. Also ppp doesn't appear
on the boot log where I think it's meant to be.

Does this happen to every one? Does everyone have to recompile their kernel
as soon as they get Linux? If so this seems a little stupid. This whole
thing may be all my fault and there could be a very simple explanation.

If possible can some one e-mail me their scripts eg, ppp-on , ppp-on-dialer
etc and a simple expenation of where they all go and what changes I might
need to make.

Any help would be greatly appreciated
Thanks in advance

1. problems, problems, 37.5 GB, problems, 1024, problems...

I have an IBM 37.5 GB hard disk and I'm trying to duel boot Windows 98 SE
and Linux.  In the oversize disk HOWTO
(http://www.linuxdoc.org/HOWTO/Large-Disk-HOWTO-12.html#ss12.1), it mentions
that a distribution running the 2.2.14 kernel will survive the insane 33.8
GB Linux booting limit.  Does this mean that I can successfully install
RedHat Linux 6.2 (the new RedHat with the Linux 2.2.14 kernel) on hard drive
with partitions like:
|  Windoze  (GBs 1-19)
|            |
|            |
|            |
|     RH 6.2 (20-37.5)
|            |
|            |
|            |

Note:  I can't seem to duel boot the RH 6.1 and Windoze.  I've had many
problems each and every time I try it and I've had to delete all partitions
on my drive and install Windoze using its own CDROM disc and its simple
