    What kind of modem are you using?
    External serial or internal hardware modems are your best bet,though more and more winmodems are working in Linux nowadays.
    To connect to the internet you might want to read Redhat's guide on the subject.

    Well you see i've done the internet configuration wizard and it has allowed me to activate my connection but i'm not sure how to get it to dial-up so it will connect me to my isp. This question probably sounds dumb but how do i get linux to dial-up.
