Sorry, I was tired last night and really thought I put in enough info,
to only read it today and go??

My only unknowns here are how to I guess "route" the LAN. I use them
presently one at a time. KPPP has been great and does some things I
have never been able to accomplish using anything else. So..

I will check these links for hints. I am thinking that I need to route
the lan, or "eth0" for my 192.168.*.* somehow and to keep it that way
while when kppp is brought up to become the route for anything else.
