I've been trawling the HOWTOs etc but I can't get a good description of how to get a dial-up connection going, all the resources I can find talk about networks in general. My brain is porridge. I'm not a newbie but I've never wanted the internet on my Linux machine before and I'm stumped. My PC-card modem seems to be supported, and I'm running Slackware. Where do I go from here? Thanks

you need to find a hosting provider and dial in to their network. once you have a phone number to call there should be some piece of software somewhere that will run the connection managing for ya. running a search on google for "dial-up linux" finds several providers and the corresponding software.

The keyword you're looking for is: ppp

I've personally never used linux with a dialup machine, so I can't help you beyond that.

'kppp' should get you going - nice and simple setup.

if you are a gnome guy check gnomefiles.org for gnoppp or gppp...
