I have Linux Pro 4.1a with kernel 2.0.27 and PPP support compiled in it.  My ISP is MindSpring.  I'm trying to connect.   When I try to connect using PPPD i get nothing.  I've edited all of my files and even tried writing a script.  Can someone please give me detailed instructions on how to connect!

How long is a piece of string, my friend?
Do you know what went wrong, and when?

ok conduct, the first place to start is really the /usr/doc/ppp*
where you'll find example scripts and everything else.
You will then proceed onto reading the scripts carefully and replacing example strings with your own (like password and so on)
Then you will proceed onto copying those scripts to /etc/pppd/
you may even want to copy the ppp-on one into /bin and call it something like "dial" and chmod u=rx /bin/dial.
Remember, you'll have to use ppp as root!
