Need Troubleshooting Information in Help

From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 Galeon/1.2.0 (X11; Linux i686; U;) Gecko/20020408
Description of problem:
If one does a custom install and installs NEAT but neglects to install Wvdial,
one can create a dialup connection, but can't use it. The software reports it
can't function and that an error 2 openning ppp0 was encountered. There is no
way for a user to know what has happened. The output is cryptic and the
documentation provides no clue.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install Redhat Linux with NEAT but without WVDIAL or
2.Possibly install NEAT after Redhat Linux installation without WVDIAL
3.Create dialup connection
4.Attempt to activate connection
Actual Results: Neat gave cryptic error that it couldn't activate the
connection. On the command line it indicated an error number 2.
Expected Results: Error messages about the lack of Wvdial would have helped
alot but particularly a troubleshooting FAQ should be available from the NEAT
docs when one clicks the Help button.
missing dependency on wvdial and not verbose initscripts
Fixed in CVS. Will appear soon via rawhide.
