I too would like to enable dial-in access via a modem connected to the
modem port (/dev/tty00 I assume).  Unfortunatly I know very little about
UNIX and have not yet been sucessful in getting it to work.  It appears
that the part of FAQ that deals with this has not yet been written.  If
anyone can provide any assistance, or even better, tell me where to look
for documentation on this topic, I would really appreciate it.

Thanks in advance.
