2.2.1 & serial ports

I've compiled a stock v2.2.1 kernel _without_ UNIX98 support so I don't 
have a /proc/tty filesystem but I can't seem to access the serial ports 
since the upgrade. In particular ppp won't dial out - it pickes up and 
senses the carrier but thats it. It's almost as if the modem doesn't have 
a dial tone (although it certainly does). Also minicom takes an age to 
initialise and then pretty much refuses to talk to the modem.
     Are you running ppp as a module? If so, did you install the new 
     modutils-2.1.121? I had same problem with ppp before installing the 
     new modutils. 
Has anybody got ppp to work with a v2.2 kernel?
     Good luck,
