   I may be getting a bit ahead of myself; but I wanted to try to set up 
my modem port so that I could dial into my Mac. I have already figured 
that ser0 & ser1 are the serial ports and that I will need to set one of 
them up in /etc/ttys. But, which one is which? Also is there an easy way 
to config. them on boot up to put the modem into auto answer mode? I 
figure that I could save a profile in the modem if need be; but I need a 
way to easily send the ATS0=1 to it to make it answer. Any suggestions?

   Also, why I'm thinking about it, what is the file name of the file 
where you specify the accounts with su access? I remember there being one 
on a BSDI system I was on once; but I can't remember what it was called.

           |  And pray for a wind, that blows from rainbow's end.  |
           |  To carry me away, where I won't have to pretend.     |
