while there may be better ways a totally sure way would be recompile the
kernel and disable SLIP support..unless the slip is loaded via module,
if so check /lib/modules/`uname -r`/ probably in the net directory, you
can move that file to your home directory to prvent the driver from
loading(easier then editing config files and such sometimes) and that
should make it impossible for a sl0 interface to come up.
