I don't use redhat but, let's see how similar it is to slack ware
search your drive for ppp-on, ppp-off, /etc/ppp/options, /etc/ppp/ppp-on-dialer.

You don't need to use a terminal window to do this.  If you have this, it is a login script
backup all these files.
If you have these files, lemme know and I'll post the answer to get you connected

Get a little program called pppsetup from www.linuxos.org it will set the whole thing up for you. Just DL it to a floppy and then unzip it and youre allready to go

can you vi ip-up and see if it doesn't have variables assigned for phone#, username, password and subnetmask and if it has a pppd script that calls the ppp-on-dialer.
Also look in /usr/sbin and see if you have ppp-on.  
Then vi ppp-on-dialer.  This should be your chat script.
Let me know.

So you have to modify the file /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/chat-ppp0 to put the login, password and option that you need.

When you have done this, the script will auto-login you into your school and initiate ppp after that.

You can see man chat to see how to modify the file, if you need more help, please, ask for it.

I will try to help you.
