Description of problem:

i installed rhel on toshiba satellite 2400 ( i m running rh9 without
any problem).
after configuring my xdsl internet connection with the Internet
Configuration Wizard, (and activating it) i still cannot connect to
the internet. i rebooted my computer, on startup i have this message:
bringing up ppp0 [FAILED]. 
(i must reactivate the connection after login).
>ifdown ppp0  gives this message : usage ifdown <device name>
on shutdown i had the message above again.
in directory /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/
i found this file : ifcfg-sympatico (sympatico is my ISP)
i renamed the file above to  ifcfg-ppp0 and that fixed the problem

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):1.2.58
