I too forgot who posted the original message, but if that person has a 
modem and since he obviously has an internet connection, why not use 
"term" to be able to sup?  That's what I do, and it works perfectly!  To 
obtain an initial complete source tree, I just used the latest tarballs, 
and then did a termified "sup" to update to the latest tree.  Who needs 
SLIP anymore?  8-).

Anyway, if one needs to know how, I could show you.
