Some more tidbits for the FAQ:

PPP - device should be /dev/cua0 for a modem connected to the Modem port

Sound- if /dev/audio dosen't work try /dev/dsp (this happened on my beige
g3, and DanB helped with that)


pppd- claims that it needs the SUID bit set .... does anyone have the exact
chmod to use for this? SUID is 's' but do you use a with it? chmod s+a
ppdp-- or is there a safer mode?

KPPP- normal user trying to use it-- complains that it can't create modem
lock file. Where is this lock file created? I assume that a dir permission
is blocking this.

Netscape 4.6 - the delete key is bound to backspace, and its driving me
nuts. Is this happening to anyone else, and how can you change that?
