I heard the last time often about problems with the ppp-driver.
For the guys that are interested:
I have written also a ppp-driver for linux, a the same time Mike
did. Mike was faster :-). If you have problems, perhaps you are willing
to use my driver. It's working since a long time for me.
Also the linux-people in the domain use it.
I'm always close to the actual kernel-versions.
If you a using it, let me know.
By the way, I'm searching for the possibility to test the support
of AppleTalk and IPX in my ppp-driver, any pointers ?
I have to linux-boxes, so I can test locally.

Best regards.
