I work at an ISP. We don't officially support Linux, but you can
connect. We don't support it due to the number of different flavors
available, and the differences between them. With Redhat, just starting
at 6.2 to present, there are 7 versions (I think), all a little
different, and if they do or don't use X makes 14 possible Redhat
flavors. There are really only 4 flavors of windows, which is much
easier to train a call center on.
Now that that is said. How do you connect to the internet? Cable
modem, dialup, etc...?
For cable modem, it's easy.
In X, goto network configuration (system settings -> network
configuration) You'll have to enter the root password.
Edit your adapter and choose dhcp
vi /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 (if eth0 is your conection
to the cable modem)
Give it these three lines
