Hi! I finally got my PPP connection going and its really exiting!  I just 
have a few general questions:

1) How can I read e-mail receive in my PPP account using NetBSD?  Is this 
difficult to set up?  If not, how can it be done?

2) Currently I'm using a baud rate of 19200 (I have a 14.4K modem) and 
while downloading a file, I got an error to the effect of "Silo serial 
overflow".  Is this a serious error?  Will it affect my downloads?  I'm 
looking to go a little faster (38400 maybe?)  Is it possible?  Do I need 
a serial card or something like that?  What are my options.

3) What is the easiest way to start pppd and kill the connection when I'm 

4) Can anyone other than root run pppd?  If so how?

Well these are my questions.  If any one knows any answers to any of 
these I will really appreciate it :-).  Thanks in advance.
