		Hmm.  Would this explain why my modem frequently
		hangs when I try user-ppp?

		In /etc/rc.serial I have, as per the Web handbook:

stty -f /dev/ttyid1 crtscts 115200
stty -f /dev/ttyld1 crtscts
stty -f /dev/cuaia1 crtscts 115200
stty -f /dev/cuala1 crtscts

		at the bottom of the file.  Is this correct?  Can
		you explain what this syntax means?
