Internet Connection with Dial up modem
I have Fedora Core 6 installation. I want to connect to internet with my Smart Link 56K Voice Modem. I tried KPPP but can't do it. I think my modem is not installed becoz its not been shown in Hardware browser list.
How can I install it and configure the connection??

I had the same situation on my early Mandrake days with my Modem when Kppp wouldn't work.
I suggest you use Wvdial which will detect any modem you have installed and write a config script. To run type at the console:
# wvdialconf /etc/wvdial.conf Scanning your serial ports for a modem.....
typing wvdial at the terminal will then start the internet connection.
Back in the day softmodems were problematic because finding linux drivers for them was hard. If you can, find out if your modem model is linux supported.
just google it with linux in the search string and see what turns up.
