Hi Ragge,
the answer is yes, I have full modem control - hooked to a modem, kermit
shows me the status of the modem, and everything looksright.

Last night I got it to dial my voice line.  I then got it to dial my
provider and attempt to handshake.

I think I have some of the settings wrong in the modem set up - I have
it  set up as a Hayes High Speed and I am running a Global Village (GVC)
and htere are some minor (and irritating at this second) differences.

Thanks for all the help everyone!  I think I will have enough data to
show everyone else how not to set up a ppp link with a dhv!  I think I
am about a cats wisker from being online via ppp with the vax!!
