OK... I need to look a little further into this.... I tried the no
script/logging in method at first, withouth much success.... :(
that's why i am using the script method right now....

the defaults..

	*       os      ""

ok, my next question... should i change the above to

       emacha	<hostname_of_client_or_server?>	""

The default method should use the /etc/passwd file... or so I think.

The reason I am using AutoPPP as a 'script' on the client side is in part
because of ignorance... when I first tried to get ppp going and it didn't
work, I decided to 'debug' on my own...;)  

Are you using the same version of pppd?? the readme's for pppd make note
of shadow support... so, I'm not sure if pppd comes default with shadow

Thanks in advance for your help,
