I've installled Red Hat 5.0 wit Xwindows an KDE. I've tried to connect
to internet by scripts an by the program which it's included in the KDE,
but I always found the same error LOOPBACK. When I instaled Linux I did
not configure the network and i supose that is the problem. This is the
result of the tail when I try to connect to internet:

May 27 22:31:02 localhost kernel: CSLIP: code copyright 1989 Regents of
the University of California
May 27 22:31:02 localhost kernel: PPP: version 2.2.0 (dynamic channel
allocation)

May 27 22:31:02 localhost pppd[422]: Connect: ppp0 <--> /dev/cua2
May 27 22:31:03 localhost pppd[422]: Serial line is looped back.
May 27 22:31:03 localhost pppd[422]: Connection terminated.
May 27 22:31:03 localhost pppd[422]: Exit.

The modem connect, but then there is an error.
I found in the archive ifcfg-lo the following

DEVICE=lo
IPADDR=127.0.0.1
NETMASK=255.0.0.0
NETWORK=127.0.0.0
BROADCAST=127.255.255.255
ONBOOT=yes

as 127.x.x.x are loopback directions I changed the archive for

DEVICE=lo
IPADDR=192.168.0.1
NETMASK=255.255.255.0
NETWORK=192.168.0.0
BROADCAST=192.168.0.255
ONBOOT=yes

but I received the same error. I think I have to change some things more
but I don't know what
Can someone help me?

THanks

You better try first to change DEVICE to what your virtual interface is
called, probably 'ppp0'.
Run 'ifconfig -a'.

Best regards, and don't let the bits byte!
