RSI man, there's a hardware forum for a reason. I'm kinda getting sick of hardware posts in OT.

Shut up Evan, stupid whining little bastard! This is about SOFTWARE, it'd be just as inappropriate in General Hardware!

Anyway, thanks a lot for that link, SHUX.

I still can't get it to work. :(

I ran pnpdump and isapnp, I see the modem info in there, but what do I do? I tried kpppd or whatever again and it still doesn't work, no matter what option I choose in it ... funny I had it dialing earlier, yet now it doesn't work (after reinstalling)... WTF.................

RSI I'm not sure if you've tried this yet or not, but frequently oin installs Linux sets my modem's com port to use the wrong irq. read the manual on setserial and use it with your isapnp dump to be sure its set correctly!
