Dear Folks,
   I have recently purchased a new computer with ThizLinux Version 5.0. 
I am trying to get onto the Internet using ThizDialup after having put 
my username, password and the telephone number of my ISP inThizConfig. 
When I use ThizDialup it acts like it is calling my ISP but it is not as 
there is only a dial tone on the phone line. It seems that it is not 
communicating with the modem and does not recognize the modem.
    I have been able to use the UNIX Terminal window to recognize the 
modem and dial up my ISP but there are handshaking problems and the an 
ISP Tech says that all their modems use PAP and not CHAP. I do not 
expect help from you on this but this information might help in 
diagnosing the problem with KDE.
   I am communicating with you using my other computer which has Windows 
98 and Netscape.
   If you can not help can you direct me to persons or organizations who 
might be able to help?
   Thank you!
