Unfortunately, neither the -h nor the -H flags seem to be working. I
finally got the system installed, and I've been working for a few hours on
setting up ppp with no luck. slattach _still_ won't work with the -h or -H

The machine is an IBM ThinkPad 350, 486SX/25, and it's connected to a
Cyrix MII 333. The Cyrix's motherboard is half-fried so I'm using an ISA
I/O card for my serial ports (which unfortunately means I only have a
16450 UART on that box, but so does the laptop).
