I want to create an internet connection from the command line. No GUI. As
much as possible, I want to directly edit the the necessary files.

The computer recognizes the modem. No winmodem or anything. I am using
RedHat 5.0. Pretty sure I have TCP/IP working.

I am doing this for educational purposes.

I suppose the thing to do is create a pppd script? Do I need to edit
resolv.conf? Do I need to do a "route add" ??

Any help appreciated, thank you.
