Connecting to Internet using Linux
I recently dual booted my computer and installed Red Hat Linux 9.1 on it.
The problem is that I cannot connect to the internet with it. I have created a Modem connection in the administrator mode, but whenever I click on the Activate button, the external modem gives the sound of the dial tone, but doesn't dial any number.
It cancels the connection and an error mesage reads- "Failed to connect to Net with error 8"
I have mentioned the details like the phone number etc.
The stupid ISP call centre says that they can only help with Windows problems.
Can anybody help?
