Mmmm, you're wanting the free advice, and you want *us* to cut and paste
a bunch of stuff for you?
What about making the effort to cut-and-paste *your* config files?
You have AutoPPP set up in mgetty, right? You have lock set up as a
pppd option, right? Mgetty is using ttyS1, or whatever unit number,
right? (Don't use cua, use ttyS.)

Do you really think that the people who read this list and help people
have more time on their hands than you do? I sincerely doubt it.
Wonder why they bother doing it?
