Dail up with seyon

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

then ask demon.net for the needed informations (DNS address, login, password ... perhaps PAP or CHAP?...)
and then explain precisely what is the problem

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..?
