As a relative newbie to unix/linux I have installed Slackware 3.1 on my
machine.  I found some instructions on the net somewhere that described
how to set up a PPP connection for AT&T Worldnet.  When I run the ppp-on
perl script they provided, it appears that the computer is trying to do
something, but it gives me about 5 lines of repeating jibberrish text
before quitting.  Anyone have any suggestions?  If I didn't provide
enough info, let me know.

Hi
I dont know if this is the answer u are looking for, but anyway here we go.

In order to make a connection to someone (ISP), u need to prepare a chat-script that contains a list of commands used to communicate with the slip server at login time.

The command u then have to use after writing the chat-script (or  as its called dip script) is dip, the dip command is located under /etc/dip/ probably.
If u run dip with the -v option it will print the debugging information for u, in case something goes wrong u can see that.

Now if I would to write that dip -script it would take a bit of space, so the best thing u can do is to run this command, man dip and u can there find a script e.x, pipe the man dip to a file, u can then cut and paste that script e.x to a empty file.

Hope this was what u where looking for.
