Hi, Evert-Jan, and thank you for the kind offer!
I had not noticed that the `slhc' mentioned in the the error
messages was itself a module, so this time I tried doing `insmod slhc'
*before* I did `insmod ppp' and -- "if u cn rd ths" -- the PPP module
seems to have been loaded correctly.
My intuition is telling me this information is probably of more
general interest so I hope you do not mind I have cc'd this reply to
Cheers and thanks again -- made my day!
