I set one up under R5.  I'm looking to redo some of that work because the 
pppd in R6 should be able to act without a getty on the serial port which 
means you can use PAP and CHAP for authentication quite easily.

I don't know what problems you had before, but I for one could never, 
ever, get agetty to pick up my modems properly.  I compiled mgetty and 
used that and had no problems.
