I'm not 100% sure I have have fixed _all_ the problems, but PPP works
reliably for me using the internal modem of the PowerBook. The fixes are
currently in vger or in Paul's kernel. I beleive the binary snapshot on
samba.anu.edu.au do have them. Are you using a kernel.org kernel distrib
? This one may lack the latest PPC patches.
