Hi Vladimir,
I had EXACTLY the same problem with linuxconf. It does not get installed by
default like in RedHat6.0 or 6.2. What  I eventually did was to install 6.2
(a full install), and then UPGRADED to 7.1.

Hi all, 

Can someone explain to me what I have to do to get the linuxconf package
installed on my system? Somehow I dodn't install it when I installed Linux
(RedHat 7.1) and now I am suffering because of that, since setting anything
up always bombs out, because linuxconf is not installed. I looked at the
RPMs on the two CDs that Linux came on, but there is no RPM called
linuxconf. What do I have to install to get linuxconf on my machine?

Also, how do I set up my modem? In the KDE control panel, I can see that my
modem is picked up by the system, I can even query it and get the normal
responses. However, when I try and dial up, using the kPPP dialer, the modem
hangs on the initialisation string, i.e. doesn't reply with a OK signal to
an ATZ command. This is strange since when I give an ATZ command from a
terminal window I get an OK reply.

What's going on, what should I do to get the modem to work with kPPP?

Alternatively, can I connect to the net without using kPPP, simply from the
terminal window?
