I've been trying to configure Redhat 5.0 to access the net,
so far with little success. I've run isapnp as per the
how-tos and still am not connecting. Part of the problem I
think is that the info I've been using is largely fragmented, being from different sources. If I can have the
exact commands, paths, and everything from getting the modem recognized to getting ppp to work, that'd be great.

If the modem is a "windows" PNP modem the modem requires special drivers from windows to run.
I have a USR 33.6 PNP modem as well, and the only way I can get it to dial my isp is to set the jumpers manually then use "minicom" to dial.

No jumpers...
and, are you talking about using windows drivers in Linux?

My apologies for selecting answer, I was a new user of Experts Exchange.
I was just saying what I had done to fix the problem with my modem which was similar.

If the modem is a winmodem (check the documentation) it can be that it's completely useless in linux. "true" winmodems have no jumpers, and have much less hardware than normal modems, and can be used only under windows (no linux, no os/2, no dos) because specs aren't public. Check if yours is a winmodem, if it's so it's not worth trying to configurate it.
