both have modems (USR on serial port).

If you have to use modems it isnt much different except that you have to dial a number first.

I dont know how to do it with the actual distro menus. I would expect that if the menu's existed it would be easy. I use to run exactly what you have asked back in 6.1 days but I did that manually with pppd and mgetty.

Callback is actually part of mgetty if enabled.

If you draw a blank from others ask again and I'll look in more depth.

Cheers Bob
