in order to connect to your isp, you need to use ppp or slip (deponds of your isp). tell us more about what you need, and look at the PPP-HOWTO and ppp man page.
tell if you need help, i'll send you a script to run pppd.
bye

Accually the ISP hookup howto is the easiest to use its at:

And everything you need to know about linux is at:
http://www.linuxhq.com/

You are going to need the ppp package to get it going, unless you have a shell account with your isp, then you just need a terminal program(I recomend minicom).  See the serial howto at linuxhq for more info.

Personally, I use DIP to do my networking (works with SL/IP, or PPP)...  However, it can be a pain to get running...
