machine, it's easy. Make sure it's turned on and detected by Kudzu when
you start your machine. If so, it should show up as one of your options
in the Internet Configuration Wizard (oh, that may not be in RH 9--I use
Fedora Core 3. Haven't used RH 9 for probably 3 years). Well, it will be
in System Settings/Network, I'm pretty sure. You can add a New
connection/by Modem, if it's not showing there, and it should allow you
to enter the ISP information (phone number, user name passwords, etc).
If RH9 has the "Modem Lights" applet on the task bar (right click and
scroll through the possible applets to add), that's a fairly easy way to
get a one-click connection setup. You need to use the "name" that shows
in the System Settings/Network page where you set it up above for Modem
Lights to be able to start it correctly. But then it will connect for
you, username/password and all, with one click.
If RH 9 doesn't have all these features, you may want to install Fedora
Core 3 (or wait a couple weeks for Core 4), if you have access somewhere
to something faster than a modem line. If not, somebody here can
probably tell you how to replicate what I've given here from the command
line (not my strength).
This and no other is the root from which a tyrant springs,
