> /etc/ppp/pap-secrets <- for username's, passwords, IP addresses and
> domains/servers. The domain/server I used was * (star).
> /etc/inittab <- using mgetty to answer the call after one ring. I forget the
> exact string used, but something like:
> s1:2345:/usr/bin/mgetty blah blah blah
> If I remember correctly, the MODEM, PPP and Mini PPP Howto explain how to do

> I hope that's of some help to you
