Is there a network interface named "tty00"?
I'd bet the answer is no -- and that ifconfig isn't broken.
You have to ifconfig _network_ interfaces; that means that if you're
running (for example) SLIP over tty00, then the interface you try
to configure must be 'slX', where X is the SLIP unit number (typically
0 if you only have one SLIP connection).
