PPP Dialer

I'm using Red Hat 7.1. Everytime I use PPP dialer, I get asked for the root password. Does anyone know a way around this? It is really a nuisance to type my root password everytime I want to connect.

Thanks for your time!

    I don't use redhat but I think there are two ways to do this.
    1) Make the program suid.
    2) use the sudoers option to allow it to do so. man sudoers should be good starting point probably.

    Sorry it took me so long to reply but I just got around looking into your reply tonight. It looks like you pointed me in the right direction. I haven't tried anything yet but I'll let you know. Thank you very much.
