    trying to configure pppd for connection to my ISP (in order to download the 5.1 patch so I can get my
    Netgear USB ehternet adapter working); need to have pppd status logged so I can get the settings.

    AFAIK there is a flag that will cause pppd to print status
    information to the console instead of the log files - look
    for it in the ppp man page

    chat can be invoked to do the same...

    I think 5.1 fixes the logging problems; someone might want
    to request a bug fix if pppd isn't getting logged properly

    Pugfantus will have a pppd fix out soon. AFAIK pppd doesn't
    even work in any releases, 5.1 inclusive.
