No no .... not wvdial (commandline app), but *K*wvdial - a glorious
KDE version of wvdial - see http://www.cnss.ca/~ppatters/kwvdial.html
- which is pretty much like Windoze DUN for my purposes.
I use V0.10, compiled from source for my Woody system. The author
makes a Sid binary deb available, but if you use Woody then you need
to compile from source (problems with libpng ..).
