I was unable to connect with ppp or Diald, so I installed an older (Slink)
version of diald and ppp and wvdial. I was able to get online with wvdial
but not with ppp or diald, that is, until I did that, and then I could not
get online at all. I recompiled the kernel, just in case, but that did not
help, so I purged diald, ppp, wvdial and their friends and then installed
ppp and still could not get online. I then went back to an older netbase
version and rebooted and I am online.

No such luck; I clean it out frequently. I keep backups on another machine
but had to reinstall that machine a few weeks ago and don't have backups.
Something must be wrong with the latest potato version of ppp.
