I setup net-setup to edit /etc/ppp/peers/gprs and /etc/ppp/gprs.chat as 
you showed me.  When you have time, could you please test if it works?  


Also what is your opinion about having in the menu a "dial" and "hangup" 
option, so that one doesn't need to type "modprobe ppp-generic ; pppd 
call gprs" and "killall pppd"?  I can change it to just echo the command 
to the user if the user should do it.  The menu is currently setup so 
when you finish configuring the device, it returns to there and the use 
can select dial/hangup.

The gprs setup works as follows:  The gprs and gprs.chat files are 
copied to gprs.orig and gprs.chat.orig, and then a sed changes the 
values.  When the script is run again, the gprs.orig and gprs.chat.orig 
are copied back to their original files, and again sed'ed.  Just seemed 
easiest to me.  Downside is that if the user changed the files 
themselves, then they are overwritten if they redo the "configure".  If 
someone has a better idea, please let me know.
