Andreas .. that was indeed the case .. and i've since re synced from an
older tarball. ppp is now working .. however the hard crashes persist ..
always when i disconnect and reconnect .. once the handshaking is done
the machine locks (no console nothing) and a minute or so later the
machine restarts. I'll try updating ppp but i'm thinking it is maybe a
kernel issue

thanks for your responce
