Setting up a modem
I've set up a local server for myself for PHP programming. I've got FreeBSD up and running (first time I've used unix too!) and I've managed to install Apache, PHP and Mysql. All this works properly.
I would like to use this machine to share an internet connection with my two windows98 machines. At the moment there is no modem installed, but I have a spare ISA modem which is using COM2.
The problem I've got is that I don't have any idea how to set up a modem under Unix. I'm assuming that Unix already has settings for COM2 becuase the port is currently enabled, but I don't know what to do, and can't find any tutorials for this online.
Does anyone know of a good tutorial for this, or is willing to explain how I would do this?
Please help!! I want to get this working!

It's well-mentioned in Chapter 16 of the handbook.

erm, thanks. *blushes*
I didn't even know there was a handbook. I was given a cd to install it from! Found the site now and know how to install it now!!
Sorry for being completely dense. It's been one of those days.......
