During startup, when all the various services are starting my system hangs when it tries to start device ppp0. i have to control-alt-delete and then use interactive startup to answer N to this service and then the startup continues fine. All other network devices (eth0, etc.) start fine. I only started seeing this after I installed mgetty - which I thought I needed for dial in modem access. (by the way dial in modem access works fine). I've looked in inittab and /etc/services to see if I see anything related to this and as well even went so far as to delete the ppp0 file in /etc/ppp/peers but no luck so far. Many thanks for any advice.

If this is Redhat: look in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts. You will probably find a file called 'ifcfg-ppp0' with a line that looks like "ONBOOT=yes". Change yes to no.
