modem problem no its not that, my modem actually works in linux. my problem is it only connects while i'm in linuxconf (i'm using mandrake). if i use kppp or one of the smaller programs, it says it connects but when i try and use it, it dosen't recognize the connection. do i need to change some files or something? i really don't want to log in and out of root just to get my modem to connect properly. thanks.
