Is there a way to set my system to use the Apple Modem tool rather than
the Express Modem to connect to my provider via PPP? As it stands I
haven't been able to keep my Express Modem from running the connection
and needless to say I can't turn off the Express Modem while it is
keeping my connection active. I am using a Q660/AV and have just
installed the new version of the Express Modem software from Apple.

Thanks for any help you can provide!
