Thank you, jreese.

About ppp dialing, I can connected with my ISP with 'minicom', but I wanna use www browser under X-windows, so I need to know the way like using Trumpet Winsock in Windows System. Can you help me?  Thanks.

Use the pppd daemon and chat to set up a PPP session with your ISP. Here's an example:

Create a sh script in your bin directory (let's call it "go_ppp):
#!/bin/bash
/usr/sbin/pppd connect ~/bin/myppp /dev/cua1 115200 asyncmap 0 crtscts lock modem defaultroute

Then create the file "myppp" (which gets called by go_ppp):
#!/bin/bash
chat -t120 ABORT BUSY ABORT 'NO CARRIER' ABORT 'NO DIAL TONE' '' ATDT8675309 CONNECT "" ogin:-BREAK-ogin: username
word: yourpassword

Edit according to your needs. Consult the man pages for pppd & chat, and look at the documentation under /usr/doc/faq/howto/PPP-HOWTO.gz

That should get you up and running; if not, let me know. You can get Netscape 4.5 from their home page.
