I had a similar problem. When everything was installed my ppp
connection was great. But when I wanted to do an upgrade install, I
had all sorts of problems ranging from getting garbage during my
interaction with the modem to the connection dying at various stages
during the transfer.

What I did was keep a copy of the modem string that I used to connect
(ATE1Q0), and give these two commands at the ppp prompt:

disable lqr
deny lqr

This seemed to fix the problem because I had a successful upgrade
install yesterday and am happily running 2.2-970618-RELENG.

So what I would do in your shoes is make sure that you are using the
same methodology that you use to connect to your ISP normally when you
try to do the FTP install with regard to commands you send to the
modem and such.
