Yes, wvdial is probably the best solution, but I am
having a dickens of a time finding a website that will
help me setup access to the internet.

I can get wvdial to connect to my ISP as root, but
even if I run mythfilldatabase as root, it can't
connect to the zap2it servers.

But this is not the forum for that kind of help, I
will keep googling.  Since I seemed to have kppp
connecting properly, I was hoping to use that.

Time to roll up my sleeves and get my hands dirty.
