Welcome to Linux - but this isn't a web-site or forum. This is a
Usenet newsgroup. Your post is distributed to news servers located
around the world, and others can read it and respond from there. It
may take an hour or two for the posts to slosh around, but eventually
it's available everywhere. I'm reading this about 1000 KM East of
half way around the world from you (600 KM East of Los Angeles).

They have people in Norseman? I thought it was just the western end of
the Eyre Highway. ;-)

This is like telling people that you can't drive to Kalgoorie, but not
providing little details like the type of vehicle, whether is has
petrol, tyres, a motor and such, the battery isn't flat, and even if
you have the key, can see, are old enough to drive and have a drivers
license of some kind. If you are expecting help, you need to provide
Let's start by identifying what kind of modem - how does it connect or
where is it installed. Can you hear anything when you try to connect
(dial tone, dialing, another modem answering)? Then the little minor
question of "which tool" are you using? Does the computer catch on fire
when you try to dial? Details, man - we need details.

No matter - they're still going to need those details. What error
message are you getting - or is this some icon you are clicking on and
you can't find where the errors are being displayed?

You are posting from Telstra IP space, and I'm sure they have a full
news spool available. While there are only 17 sanctioned Linux groups
in the Big-Eight hierarchy (all in comp.os.linux.*), your news server
probably also carries a substantial number of other groups, such as
this one. But none of them are going to be useful unless you tell
people what you have, what you are doing, and what happens. We can't
see your computer from here, so you have to be our eyes and ears.
