Re: Red Hat 5.0 Release date

     IMHO, after the install script has led the user through the steps
of creating a root password and setting up a user account, it should
display a message about configuring ppp, then walk him through the
necessary modifications to /etc/ppp/chatscript, /etc/ppp.options_out,
and /etc/ppp/options to fit his ISP setup.  It should be possible to
completely configure ppp, at least for users with dial-up access to
their ISP, and simple authorization.  I'm not familiar with PAP, so I
can't say if PAP authorization could be set up that simply.  

     If this were implemented, it could eliminate a high percentage of
the questions on deb-user regarding ppp setup.
