My ISP doesn't support a Linux system and I don't have broadband I have dial-up and I was wondering if anyone could tell me how to setup my computers so I can dial-up to the internet on my Windows computer and then access the internet from my Linux computer through the Windows computer.

What do you mean by saying
Code: [ Select ]
ISP doesn't support a Linux system


Providing Internet Connection has nothing to do with your OS.

They don't have a version of the software that I have to have on my computer in order to connect to the internet for linux. Well actually they do but it's a .deb file for Lindows and I am running RedHat.

Er, uhm.
ISP's "software" typically consist of a web browser and email client. Only in the old days did we have to include winsock and tunnels.

Sure they might create a customized browser, but the only thing you care about it the PPP (point to point protocol) connection, the username and the password. (Generally speaking)

Follow this, for RedHat;
