internet connection (sent incorrectly, repeated here)

I have just installed the base system on a 68040 Mac with MacOS8 (I am
very new to this).  The installation went well and is up and running,
but I can't seem to get anywhere on the internet.  ppp is dialing the
modem and making the appropriate noises, but the other programs insist
that nothing is happening.  Telnet says no connection, Apt-get and
dselect say things like Failed to get, could not resolve, no such file
or directory, host name lookup failure, error exit status 1, etc.  Can
somebody point me in the right direction here?
Also, while I'm at it, I get nothing with the man command.  Has more
replaced that or am I doing something wrong?
Any assistance would be most appreciated.
