will not redial when connection lost

Description of problem:
When connection is lost to the internet, redhat will not call back. This
is after the option "Redial when disconnected" option is set in the Dialup
Configuration icon from the Gnome desktop. Infact, when I go look at the
settings, this option is no longer enabled. No matter how many times I've
tried, this option will not "stick", and the problem keeps existing, even
I really need to stay connected to the internet constantly, for I run a
website via a dedicated dialup line to the internet.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Configure Dialup Configuration for ISP, and set to reconnect after
2. Connect to the internet, wait until connection is lost
3. Try accessing the internet, not available nor does it try to reconnect
Someone mentioned on a discussion area that the kernel 2.4 has problems with
PPP and I should switch to older kernel. Does this sound related to my
problem? Has anyone else had the problem I mentioned?
