I am a linux newbie. I got some problems on how to automatically start my ppp connection when my computer is turned on. I've configured it in my rhppp dial-up configuration. But when i tried to reboot my computer it hangs up on ppp0. My modem didn't even dial the  connection number.

check if there is file /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-ppp0 in your linux box. If the file exist then check if parameter "ONBOOT=yes" is in the file! If not add above parameter in a new line!
