No. She has somehow managed to get the string '/dev/modem' into her
provider file as a separate string, and pppd is quite naturally trying to
understand it as an option.
Michelle: please post copies of your /etc/ppp/peers/provider and
/etc/chatscripts/provider files (hide the password). Also, please try to
remember exactly how you answered the questions in pppconfig, so that I can
figure out what I need to clarify.
