ppp disconnecting when mgetty starts

I have mgetty answering my phone on my linux computer. But when I try to dial out to my isp, mgetty disconnects my modem so that it can monitor the line. Is there a way I can get mgetty to stop doing this without having to remove mgetty from my inittab?

Make sure that mgetty and ppp (your chat script) are using
the _exact_ same device.  File locking should take care of the
rest.  For instance if you have mgetty running on /dev/ttyS0
and are dialing out on /dev/cua0, one may not know about the
other one.

If you needed to kludge it for some reason you could probably
have your ppp script create a lock file (in whatever directory
you have mgetty setup to look for it) and remove the lock file
when you are finished.
