Thanks. I found out when my kernel OOPSed :)
I've been trying to dial in, but my connections are rather poor. The
Ascend routers keep on dropping me, and pppd dies with exit code error 16

Have e-mailed them at linuxant.com.

A friend got his working on a M3 recently - well, just last night thanks
to IRC I guess. He used a kernel patch and the m3mirror tool. Haven't
tried it yet on mine.
