    Nope. Evidently it was `CONFIG_PPP=y'.   
    (I now have PPP in a module.)

    I still think the whole business of kernel management on Debian is
a bit murky.

     Is it the intention that `debian.rules build' and `debian.rules
binary' be run on the kernel source.deb?

     Also, why won't `dpkg' let me remove image.deb?

     I just finished compiling the kernel+modules, installing the
modules, and making a new boot floppy (I don't use lilo), so I would
just as soon not be carrying image.deb on the books.

     Not complaining!
