PPP doesnt use DMA memory , so PPP isnt going to be subject to that. The PPP
problems would have to have been something totally different.


That is what happens when you don't report immediately a problem.
Memory fails you when you do it. But I am pretty sure to have had
this problem with other modules besides floppy (Mitsumi cdrom I think,
perhaps also with the psaux driver).
