When you are in a telephone network you'l have to dail a zero for outgoing
calls. When a configured a isdn ppp connection the telephone number was 0

I am running the Gnome window manager. And I configured the ppp connection
in "linuxconf" I was using the "Modem Lights App." and I selected isdn in
When you say "When you are in a telephone network", do you mean "When you are
using a private exchange unit" (aka PABX) ? If so, check that it is "0" that you
have to prefix the number with, as in my experience, it's usually "9" that has
to be used as a prefix in Europe - I assume that .nl is Netherlands ???
If you instead mean "When you wish to call a non-local number" (the other likely
interpretation of your comment), note that what has to be dialed depends on what
country you are in, even within Europe.
If you mean something else, please clarify your comments.

I can't imagine why a leading 0 would be stripped, as it's treated
as a string not a number, but I'd be interested to know.
A leading 0 is quite common in the US when dialing calls that are
charged to a "calling card" so if this were really a software
problem, I would have expected to hear about it before.
ISDN links use a different, modified pppd called ipppd.
please use the new isdn configuration tool from
configure your ISDN networking.
0 shouldn't be the problem for not getting the connection.

that shows how the kernel dials? That should show what
the real problem is.
