After a debian (3.0) install on  this machine, my route table looks 
like this:

Destination     Gateway         Genmask                 Flags   Metric 
 Ref     Use     Interface
==============================================================         *        UH      1    
           0       0        tap0
localnet               *                    U   
       0               0       0       eth0
default                 *                             
  U          1            0        0        tap0

This machine's address (fixed) is ... but the network is 
not connected.

I have a dialup ISP arrangement and can dial the ISP and pass the 
identification process using either pppconf or wvdial.  What is 
missing from my route table that will allow me to cruise the 'net and 
recover emails?  All replies thankfully received.

Many thanks
