I am using SCO UNIXWARE 7.1.0.
When I connect to my ISP, the modem connects
but instead of asking foe login and password
the screen filles with garbage character and
the line disconnects.
What should I do?

If first characters of the garbage are "~-^Uppp-~" than everything is OK with your modem (and ISP).
Your ISP offers you dedicated PPP connection with, most probably, PAP authentication (or maybe CHAP). You have to know it from your ISP. Than refer to manual about PPP dialout configuration or see UnixWare 7 FAQ.

The first character is a "tilde" and then "y" with two dots over it.
