boot prompt, I MUST HAVE this modem on ttya.
I would now like to setup PPP to run over this same port, ttya.

system full" message) being sent to /dev/console*up the ppp
Or does the Sun's PPP somehow lock the /dev/term/a port thus blocking
console messages from being sent to /dev/console (and hence

/dev/console, but what about programs that just redirect to
/dev/console and don't use the syslog facility? Yes, I know I could
