I just installed RedHat Linux 9 on my PC .
I have a vsnl dial-up connection and a 56k modem.
I tried connecting to the net via kppp.I followed the dialog setup
and entered the details that i was aware of and left the others on the options that they were already pointing to .
later when it clicked on connect i got a message 'no dialtone detected'
though while booting it did detect the modem .
Please help.

Durring the boot proccess the computer doesn't actually check for a dial tone, it only checks to see if it thinks the modem is there.

I am going to give you the benifit of the doubt and asume there is a dial tone, that means that the drivers for your modem aren't correct.

Double check you driver seetings and if the problem persists come back with the information on the modem and what drivers you are uses.
