Thanks. It works. Now for another modem question. According to
/proc/pci I have an internal device on another PC...
Bus 0, device 16, function 0:
Serial controller: US Robotics/3Com 56K FaxModem Model 5610 (rev 1).
I/O at 0x1430 [0x1437].
Not only did it work on Windows 98SE the previous millenium, but it
also worked on Redhat Linux, so it's a real modem. I've tried using
setserial to configure it as /dev/ttyS1 (I only have one physical serial
port and it's also the only one defined in the BIOS). Telling setserial
to use IRQ 9 and base I/O address 0x1430 gets no response at all. And
trying the autoconfig option freezes my system solid. I have to hit the
reset button to reboot.
One last question; where can I permanently configure MTU for eth0 and
ppp0 ? ADSL should be either 1492 or 1454, *NOT* 1500. Dial-up is
