Thanks Sebastiaan. The thing is that I configure that in Windows very easily
because it has the option of a broadband connection which required a login
and a pasword. For other MS OS's nor WinXP a configuration CD is used. Both
methods leave you with an icon you only click to connect. Nothing much in
the way to know how things work and I doubt my ISP's support people would be
able to help because they are happy just to lead you through the CD
installation wizard.
