Hello -
Before I die I would like to get Netscape running under
RH Linux 4.2.  I have been wading through PPP HOW-TO docs,
various e-mail exchanges, my ISP FAQ (for Slackware), and
nything I can get my hands on!  Can someone walk me thru
the ABCs (please)?

Currently I can get 'netcfg' to dial my ISP account (and I
always see 'connect script fail' from /var/log/messages.
When Netscape trys to boot I get URL/DNS failure (can't
find hostname entry).  Does life have to be so hard?
Thanks.   TIM WEIL - Takoma Park MD.

The easiest way to get ppp to work is to use a chat script like so:

pppd connect /dev/cua1 defaultroute ' chat "" ATDT(provider phone no.) ogin: your_login word: your_password '

This will dial your provider and start ppp. Note change /dev/cua1 for your port.

Then open netscape and this will work fine.
