faisal, please just reply to the list. don't cc: to me. i just end up with 
double the messages. if i'm responding to the list, it means i'm reading the 
list, so the cc: is redundant.

the sample /etc/wvdial.conf below works for my box to connect to my isp. my 
modem is also on com port 2--from a windoze perspective--which in linux 
translates to /dev/ttyS1. as far as com ports are concerned on linux, or 
indeed an unix variant, the numbering starts at 0, respecting arabic rather 
than roman numerics, reflecting a plain sense incorporation of common  
mathematical logic that should be honored by anyone purporting to serve the 
interest humans using computers. (sorry, that was an involuntary rant against 

getting back to the issue at hand, fire up your favorite editor and load 
/etc/wvdial.conf and edit it to include the appropriate details for your 
connection in those sections that are x'ed out in the sample below. you may 
have to run wvdial as root. that is, if you're running x, open an xterm, type 
su, hit enter, enter the root password. at the prompt, type wvdial, and hit 

Modem = /dev/ttyS1
Baud = 57600
Init = ATZ
Init2 = AT S11=50
Phone = xxxxxxx
Username = xxxxxxxxx
Password = xxxxxxxxxxx
Dial Command = ATDP

in the event that that doesn't work for you, get back to us--but, please 
remember, you don't need to cc: to me; just send it to the list.

i hope this helps you along.
