I'm using the gnome desktop, but was unable to find kppp, the only place I find I can set up the modem is in the network area.
Is it located in an obscure place ?
I'm only groping around with linux at the moment so treat me like an idiot :-)

You can open up all your programs from the command line as long as you know it's command. Let's see if you have kppp installed. open a terminal, any will do, and type:
And press enter.
If not, it should be a simple matter to install it. Just open your redhat package manager and look for kppp. I believe it's in the kde section. Just for fun, let's see if you have wvdial installed. Also from the command line, become root. You do that by typing:
And preseeing enter. It will ask for your root password. Enter that and press enter. Notice that the '$' sign is now a '#' sign. This means you are now Super User. Type:
And press enter. Is it there?
