Is /dev/modem0 the same as /dev/ttyS0?

If it is set up properly, mgetty will login when it sees incoming PPP
(probably LCP?) packets.  I don't need to login as AutoPPP - all our
Win95 clients work without scripting or logging in.

"debug" would be much more useful than "kdebug 2" for figuring out
the problem.

What do you actually have?  I use pap-secrets to control who has a
dialup account (as opposed to email or a shell), so I put:

    carey            hostname        ""
