What type of modem do you have?
What steps have you taken so far to install ppp-up? It sounds like you haven't unpacked it or you weren't in the proper directory when you ran the chmod command.

Hi Joey, thanx for reply, my modem is a creative modem Blaster V92 PCI D15791 I am very very new to Linux ,
I have been working through the pppup howto file and got as far as editing files (DNS and dial up number) with emacs as I don't have pico. all seems well until I type in "chmod 700 ppp-up,
chmod 700 ppp-down" when I get the error "chmod failed to get attributes of pppup-up no such file or directoy"
also after typing ./InstallMe I get a list of files to overwrite two of them have errors ( etho: error fetching interface info directory not found, & cp can not start 'READ*; no such file or directory)
thanx, cantankerousgit
