I get very defensive about the broadband/modem connection issue. As
someone who sits at the end of *many* miles of crappy copper and who
suspects that there a lot of other linux users in the same boat.

So count 1 full-time Linux user who really needs pppd.

And an aside.. I just discovered LFS after many years of Linux use
(sometime prior to 0.12). I'm really enjoying the books you folks have
put together.

I have 12 years experience as a software evaluation engineer with Intel
Corp and I hope I can someday add some of that experience to this
