I have a question along these lines as well.  I was able to use my modem
under Slackware using Seyon.  I have now put RH5.2 on and I have tried
using Minicom to get the initialization strings and whatnot for my
modem, but it doesn't do anything.  Is it possible to get Seyon for RH?

Thanks a lot!
P.S. Can you use Linuxconf to set up the scripts to connect
automatically, like say I wanted to click a button in a wharf and it
would go ahead and dial up the connection for me.
