the /pipe/log is probably because when you boot, the syslog daemon
didn't have enough time to create everything, and the next prog run
directly after., Look in your /etc/rc file
and add that right after the syslogd init part
Then here you should have your cron daemon.
If you don't have enough time betweem,. you'll most likely experience
the /pipe/log prob :)
As for the pppd connection, well 1) make sure pppd by itself works
fine. from the aes run it from a shell.
like, run bash into toswinII then make sure your user is either root
or in the group 'wheel'
2) what mint version do you have? also, could you make a dump of your
mint setup with the program "MiNTsetter 2.6" ?
I never used connexion myself, faster for me to type pppd than
launching connexion etc.
