ppp weirdness

hello everyone!

this is a weird one...

i've installed pppd.  using kppp, i activate the connection.  

upon activating the connection, the kppp shell reports the following error:  

	could not find device ppp0

it connects to the server.  i can ping / traceroute to the gateway server.  netstat -nr shows a routing table that looks ok ( shows ppp0 bound to the correct gateway on the default route ).  ifconfig shows ppp0 with a new IP address.  netstat -i shows an active connection.

in checking ifcfg-ppp0, i see it is bound to /dev/ttyS0.  /dev/modem points to this file ( the kppp setup looks ok ).

however, i cannot get out of the machine with anything besides ping or traceroute.  it is not possible to browse using lynx or netscape 
( destination unreachable, but i cannot see a problem with the routing tables ).

i'm still scratching my head on this one...any ideas?
