yep. upgrading removed (PCI-related) warnings during boot and now
XF86Config, e.g., recognizes the diamond s3-virge which it wasn't doing

the ppp-on-dialer script was unable to pass the 'AT' command to the modem.
there was txd/rxd activity but the modem was not receiving the command.

the string being passed by the script (which i borrowed from the PPP-HOWTO
included a /r -- '/rAT' -- the modem in the 486 had no problem with the
return. but, both the gdc and the us robotics (on the pentium)
did. i removed the 'r' and... voila. funny. had ruled out the script
because it "worked" and had been "tested." duh.
