Subject: Userland PPP and "timeout 180" options

I have plans to finally set Xwindows on my machine, and the
src+dependency list is huge. Im connected to the net via 56k. I have
concerns about getting knocked off in the middle of a compile and thus
cutting off my download of another dependency. I heard the the "timeout
180" in the /etc/ppp/ppp.conf file is a purely cosmetic line. Is this
true? And if so how can I keep my connection alive?

Windows, not worth the CD its burned on.
