how do you feel about entering google?

wvdial always worked for me, although I must say it is a long time since
I used dial-up for anything.

wvdialconf <configfile>
is the correct setup command, IIRC

chkconfig --list
will show you all the System V and xinetd services installed on your
system and whether they start by default
chkconfig <servicename> on|off
will set the default state for <servicename>

many files in /etc/sysconfig are sourced by scripts in /etc/rc.d/init.d
when they are run - as <servicename> starts, it will read 
/etc/sysconfig/<servicename>

it means that this kernel feature will be built as a loadable kernel
module,rather than being compiled in directly
