This line refers actually to a program which is listening on the first
virtual console (which you get to with alt-f1 or ctrl-alt-f1 from X)
waiting for a login.  the 38400 does refer to a serial linespeed but is
just a bit of a holdover from when all terminals were on serial lines.

if you want to find out how fast your modem is connecting have a look at
/var/log/ppp.log (just type 'plog -f' to follow this file as you are

something like:
