Hello,
I want to quit with NT 4.0 and start with Linux. I have installed linux Slackware (jan 98 version) and X-windows.
My modem works fine because I have called with "Seyon". The problem is that my provider has no help file
or script for linux (www.demon.net). When I call my provider I get a terminal window and when I type my login, password  and then swith to PPP there are many strange letters and symbols in that window and after
a few seconds my modem hangs up with the message "No Carrier". What can I do. In windows NT / 98 I
push F7 to go on but in Linux there is no key to go on. And where can I get sample scripts?

Greeting Max

Well, there should be some HOWTO's on this topic standard on
your system. The way I learned about this kind of stuff was by
reading some of the helpfiles I found, etc. These also provide some example scripts that you can use. Maybe 'man pppd' would
be a nice start..?

please read

 http://sunsite.unc.edu/mdw/HOWTO/PPP-HOWTO.html
then ask demon.net for the needed informations (DNS address, login, password ... perhaps PAP or CHAP?...)
and then explain precisely what is the problem
