Exactly! I installed base at the same time.

Well, according to lsmod and /proc/modules:

dummy              1
ppp                5
slhc               2	[ppp]
lp                 2
nfs               11
msdos              6
isofs              5

Yet, when I execute pppd I get the message:

PPP not available on this system.

I have the feeling that the reconfiguration that I was able to do with the
boot/root pair was incomplete. Is there a description for manually
configuring the system, so I can go through and check all the relevant
config files and get them correct?

Is there some way to configure the system without having to resort to the
boot/root disks to do so?

Thanks, Dale
