PPP Connection on RH4.0 Box

I have tried hard on making ppp connection on my rh4.0 to my ISP. I can manually dial to the ISP using minicom and make ppp connection. After enter the "ifconfig" or "route -n" command, everything seems alright. However, I then try to check the connecting by "ping" the ISP or other address, it just send a little package of data out but never back. Moreover, I cannot use other services like ftp as well.  I have checked the file "resolv.conf" and sure the information on that file is right.  Suppose it is my own machine problem because I can connect smoothly with my win95 machine.  Is there any problem with my kernel? I install the redhat system on every default option. Did I missed anything important?  Thank you for any help.

Get the program ezppp from http://www.linuxos.org, It will set it all up for you and also I STRONGLY recommend reading the PPP-How To if you havent done so already. If youre running X then get the program EZPPP from the same site
What do you mean by 'seems alright'??
Can you post the printout??
try netcfg in X-windows to add a ppp-interface, configure that and activate the interface.

After I check out everything step by step and review the log message, I found that the problem is caused by my network card. The card was the default route so that data are transfer to the card. After I deactivate the card, the dial up process become normal. Anyway, thanks for all comments and suggestion.  BTW, how could I get so many on line resources (like get EZPPP) while I can't online?  =P

I read your comment at internet cafe, aszure. Really thank you for your comment.

you may need to make sure that your ISP has in fact
logged you in per the contents of your ppp_chat file.  In other
words, make sure that you have included the correct prompts
given by the server upon connection.   If you don't include the
correct prompts in your ppp_chat file, the connection will just
sit there as the server waits for a login name and password.
