Okay, I'm back.  I sprang for Gentoo and Fedora 15 distribution discs, and
now I seem to have a nice, but expensive, set of coasters because apparently
all of Linux has gone tiny console fonts at something like 170x48 resolution
(and really are turning themselves into Gnome machines that totally neglect
command line applications).  Since I am in unices for the command line
applications I don't have much choice.  But I still don't want to be
stranded in an orphaned version when 7.x reaches the end of its life.

Since uart in 8.x will not support my PCI 3com hardware modem (as FreeBSD
sio has since 4.x) and my PR is gathering dust, before I buy any more
coaster sets from, it behooves to ask if there are any dialup
modems that 8.x uart actually supports for ppp on demand?
