I'm posting this summary quite late; my apologies. I got a lot of enlightening
responses, which answered my questions. I feel kind of stupid after researching
what I was asking... Oh well, here goes;
BTW: A couple of people flamed me because this was an inappropriate subject for
this group. I've been reading posts for quite awhile now, and I'm not sure I
agree with that. At any rate, I received a lot of "me too's" so I've opted to
write a summay despite what they say!
* Sorry if this is in a FAQ, but does anybody know where I can download
* PPP? Is that the PD form of slip (the only one?)?

email@example.com (Ian Couroulis) gave me a FAQ on PPP. Its just too
large (don't what to be flamed!), but email me if you'd like a copy of it.
firstname.lastname@example.org (Jim Hendrickson) gave me a previous summary
on also on PPP (for PC's). Email me directly if you'd like a copy of that too.
Now, I automatically opted for slip, because that's what my specs called for.
Many people gave ftp sites, the primarily;
ftp.morningstar.com (220.127.116.11) (received and installed slip-4.1.1
Not public domain, from email@example.com (Jimmy Y. Cheng);
