I am new to Linux.  I have just loaded RH 7.2, which appears to be working fine.  The problem I am experiencing is that I am unable to get my modem working.  I have an external Elite Series 56K modem.  I have used minicom and managed to access my ISP by typing ATDT08005190100 then username and password.  It connects and then starts printing across the screen.  I should be able to to exit minicom without it disconnecting.  Also how to I configure Netscape once I have my modem working correctly.

You probably want to use 'pppd' to connect to your ISP. 'pppd' can handle PAP and CHAP authentication and get an IP address. Check out the man page and post here if you have more questions.

Install wvdial (available free from the net) as well as pppd, wvdial can be used from the command line and is pretty easy to configure. config file is loated at /etc/wvdial.conf , where you can enter phone number, user name etc

For a graphial dial up manager try kppp, again very easy to  configure.

If netscape is installed then no other configuaration is required, just connect and run netscape
