I can get my modem to accept incomming calls as just a dialup connection (ie: NOT TCPIP).  But i'd really like to set my Linux box so that i could call in with PPP.  I've haven't been successful yet.
It's on a LAN, and i've got 1 external modem on COM1.

Well, you're halfway there... First thing is to make sure you can dialup the linux box and login.

Now you want to get a package called "mgetty" which can detect whether an incoming call is for PPP and can even do PAP and CHAP negotiation.  Docs should be included.  You might want to read the PPP-HOWTO as well.

Good luck!
