USR Sportster modem config for ISP

I have had problems getting my modem setup on my Linux machine.  Is there anyway I could test if it is working
properly or not.  I try to connect  to my ISP and once
the pppd daemon starts it dies with an tcgetattr I/O error.

I have an internal Mwave modem (which is crap, and useless
for Linux), but I am using a USR Sportster 1440 Vbis external modem.  Could it be a conflict in ports or addresses?

Should I use minicom or kermit to test my connection?


Thanks in advance for your help

What COMs are the 2 modems using?  Make sure they are not in conflict.

minicom will be nice to test.  just dial and login to your ISP.  then quit with reset and
try do pppd manually.
