I hope that someone is willing to help me with this, The following
is a description of a problem I'm having with my system.
I am really trying to get Red Hat 4.1 working, but I've tried this
with SlackWare 3.0 and it is the same. If you are
unwilling or unable to help, stop now (the rest is long and boring). :-(
If you are willing and able to help, thank you.

I cannot get connected to my ISP with Linux Red Hat 4.1.
I have read every Howto and FAQ and book I could lay my hands on.
I've re-formated my hard drive and completely re-installed from scratch.
I've called my ISP's support (flash.net) and they swear it's not there
fault.
I can connect just fine with all the same hardware through Windows95.
The US Robotics Sportster 33.6kps modem dials up ok ( in Linux).
It sounds like the Handshake is OK too. If I use Minicom, I can see
that I do get a connection, but not all of the welcome text is displayed
(as it is if I use Windows95 dialer) for instance the "LOGON" is only "LO"
I have noticed that eveything I type in Minicom takes a VERY long time
to echo to screen (a whole minute at least), is that a clue?
Yes, I checked and PPP is starting at boot up.
I am including my message log below, the end of it shows the login attempt.

Yes, I have tried: "lo" instead of "ogin:"
And , as I mentioned above, I did try a manual login.

The delays and missing characters seems to indicate that you
have a interrupt conflict. Windows 95 is a PnP OS and so you
are probably not experiencing the same problems.

Make sure that the com port you are running the /dev/modem is
not sharing interrupts with anything else. Also, if you
have an internal modem running on a non-statndard interrupt
for that com port, use the setserial utility (check the man
pages for details) to set and then ensure that the interrupt
is what you expect it to be.

The answer is very terse, but absolutely correct. I would come to
rfedane again for help. Please be a little more verbose though.
I am not a linux expert.

   Thank you
