It took me ages to work this one out, but it'squite simple, if I manage to
remember correctly here :-)

Create a file, '/etc/ppp/pap-sectrets'. (I don't know how you will do that
on a TOS-partition, unless you install, Franks VFAT/NewFatFS - whichever.

Make sure the permissions are '0600' ('chmod 0600').

If your username is "houplon" and your password is "falcon1", then you
need to enter a line like this:

houplon   *    falcon1

This should work! The '*', the only field I have yet to explain, is the
'remote server' field of the line. If you only logged into one 'server',
you would enter it's name instead of an '*', but seeing as this is for a
dial-up line, where you will almost certainly, get validated by different
servers, it means "match all servers".

Hope that helps!
