I need help setting up a connection to the internet through X Windows.  I am new at this so I will need step by step instructions.  I have a 3com USR v.90 faxmodem to use to connect to my ISP.

try open your x windows, there is a control panel bar. There has a button for the network(network card<etho> or other modem <ppp-0>). Try add a new ppp0 adapter at there and enter those DNS, login name, password field. then try to enable this ppp0. the modem should dial out and login in to your isp.

ans problem, mail me back.

when u install your red hat 5.1, when it ask where your modem at com1, com2... did u answer on com1 or com2(depend on your pc). check where did /dev/modem point to.
if set at com1, it will like /dev/modem --> /dev/cua0.

it this can make your modem dial out, good! the next step is check can your login script use to login your isp successfully.

eb127: seems that you´re having IRQs/com problems... i had it too with my usrobotics.
i changed the jumpers of the modem to IRQ3/com2   and it´s working fine now :o)

Best regards
