    There are newer .rpms [for RH9, anyway] which may help:
    redhat-config-network-1.2.15-1.noarch.rpm
    redhat-config-network-tui-1.2.15-1.noarch.rpm

    The results should be 3 files that are hardlinked ("ln", not "ln -s"):
    /etc/sysconfig/networking/profiles/default/ifcfg-<nickname>
    /etc/sysconfig/networking/devices/ifcfg-<nickname>
    /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-ppp0
    and a file /etc/ppp/peers/ppp0 which contains
    -----
    connect "/usr/bin/wvdial --remotename ppp0 --chat '<nickname>'"

    where <nickname> is typically the name of the ISP. Make the nickname
    without spaces or special characters, etc.

    The contents of ifcfg-<nickname> sometimes look like

    If things don't work automatically, you can always try running wvdial
    directly (as root). Either use the line from peers/ppp0, or just
    # wvdial <nickname>

    YMMV [Your Mileage May Vary]. Good luck!

    No such updates are posted for Red Hat 8.

    I checked each of the links and config files you suggested, and found
    things to generally be in order. So I tried...

    [rootFred root]# wvdial <nickname>
    --> WvDial: Internet dialer version 1.53
    --> Initializing modem.
    --> Sending: ATZ
    ATZ
    OK
    --> Modem initialized.
    --> Sending: ATDT<number>
    --> Waiting for carrier.
    ATDT<number>
    CONNECT 52000/ARQ/V90/LAPM/V42BIS
    --> Carrier detected. Starting PPP immediately.
    --> Starting pppd at Mon Aug 18 22:28:21 2003
    --> pid of pppd: 1007

    I don't see a confirmation of my login, but I assume it took place, or
    I would expect my ISP would have hung up within a few minutes.

    Still no joy as to reaching the net. Grasping at straws, I tried...

    [rootFred root]# ifconfig

    (After trying to ping various hosts local to my ISP, I again tried...)

    [rootFred root]# ifconfig

    (The modem was still active, and remained so until I whacked it and
    got the wvdial process's attention, but nothing I did made the Tx/Rx
    lights flicker.)

    Thanks, John, for getting me this far. Any suggestion for what I
    should try to actually get on the net, and how I can make this all
    happen automagically?

    Again, TIA
