What are you trying to do??

Are you trying to connect to your ISP?
Allow other users to dial into a shell account on your machine?
Allow other users to dial into a PPP account on your machine?

More info please....

I assume that you want to connect to your isp.  Redhat makes it fairly easy.  Just log in as root and start up x-windows(startx).
Then select network from the control panel.
You can then setup all the info.  You want to create new interface(ppp0 if your providor uses ppp).  You need to set your DNS, login script, and setup ppp0 as the default gateway.

The average business loses $13.5M per year to ineffective training (per 1,000 employees). Keep ahead of the competition and combine in-person quality with online cost and flexibility by training with Linux Academy.

The easiest way is to setup 2 user account for each user.(using add user or edit /etc/passwd file directly)  One is the shell account and the other is the ppp account(put a P in front of user).  They show you how to do this in the linux isp howto at:(they even have some neat scripts)

Also you need to setup a getty(agetty, getty_ps, or mgetty) on the modem/serial port in question.  That is setup in the /etc/inittab file.
