I have just setup a debian system, and have the base components installed. Now I want a ppp connection? How would I go about doing this?? I have a 56K flex modem by KTX on Com2... I would like to use the web through linux and irc and have some servers running such as apache and an irc server aswell, can someone guide me along with setting this up???  The best way>???

First of all, you should read the PPP howto.

can someone tell me where it is, as I only insrtalled the basesystem and it didn't inmstall a ppp how to. Can someone point me in the direction????
You will want the following document from the Web:
     ppp-how-to   from  www.interweft.com.au/other/ppp-howto/ppp-howto.html
     ppp-FAQ      from   www.interweft.com.au/other/ppp-faq/PPP-FAQ.html
It is possible to find it from a mirror site closer to home.
It contains about forty pages of info on PPP from setup, to networking, to connecting with a local computer via  with a null-modem cable.  If you are trying to establish connection with an Internet Service Provider (ISP), you will also want
     ISP-Hookup  from  www.gslis.utexas.edu/mirrors/LDP/HOWTO/ISP-Hookup-HOWTO.html
