Configuring RH6.1 as dialin ppp server

I've tried putting getty in the /etc/inittab with:

dl:23:respawn:/sbin/getty -L 38400,19200,9600 ttyS0 vt100

for the modem in /dev/ttyS0.  However I get an error message saying spawning too fast. How do I resolve this?

Sound to me like you didn't install getty rpm, check for
getty files by typing   find /|grep getty, or make sure its in /sbin dir
Enjoy


Serial Line Setup (for a terminal)
-  etc/inittab    T0:23:respawn:/sbin/getty -L ttyS0 38400 ansi
-  and also make sure you have getty rpm installed.

Modem Line Setup ( PPP Dialin Server )
- etc/inittab     T1:23:respawn:/sbin/mgetty -x0 -s 57600 ttyS1
- and also make sure you have installed mgetty rmp for this to work
