Description Karsten Weiss 2001-08-05 06:23:55 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:0.9.2) Gecko/20010729

Description of problem:
1. The HTML documentation e.g. in    
/usr/share/doc/HTML/{de,en}/internet-config/adsl.html is
inconsistent. The screenshots show different label
names than the explanation text (e.g. "Login name" vs. "User name")

2. IMHO the GUI and the online help should mention the unit of the
   "Dial on demand" timeout.
   Is it seconds or minutes? The user has to guess.

3. The "Usage of your ADSL link" explanation is misleading because
   "/etc/rc.d/init.d/pppoe start" only works if the user enables
   the "Start this connection at boot time" switch (the pppoe script
   checks if $BOOT=yes and exits otherwise)

4. The German locale says "Verbindungstype auswdhlen". The correct
   translation must read "Verbindungstyp auswdhlen".

5. In /usr/share/doc/HTML/en/internet-config/adsl.html
   there is a spelling mistake: "connecntion"

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Read the documentation.

internet-config is now obsolete in the next redhat release. 
redhat-config-network is the new
config tool for ADSL/PPP/ISDN/Network/Cipe. You find it in the rawhide
