I install Redhat 5.0. I login as "root".
I try to connect to internet. I read some manual they told that type "startx", go to control panel and click at modem, but for me when i click at control panel, nothing happen. I heard that type something in xterm. Again, how, Please ...

PS. It look like my background is black color, I even can not see the cursor when i went to other application.  Do i need to set this thing too.

Try the ppp dialup HOWTO. This document should be in the /usr/docs/HOWTO directory.

If you can install a new version of RedHat, you should upgrade to 6.1
It has kppp and installing ppp dialup is very very easy using kppp
