Well then, your serial controller should be a fast one.  Maybe it is
wvdial, or whatever it uses to detect serial port/modem capabilities.

The mistake may be mine.  I'll have to check that machine again to
be sure.  It's a Solaris box with free ppp on it.  I'm *sure* it will
only do 38400 since I had to d**k around with Sun's stupid aspppd until I
gave up on it and put a working ppp on it.  I'm not sure about the arch,
though.  It may be a SparcStation 10 (sun4m) - it's been awhile since
I've looked at it and for some reason this detail escapes me.  I'm trying
to arrange to replace it with an Ultra running Debian.  Does anyone know
what multi-port cards work with sparc linux, say 2.4.0-testx?
