That's funny - kinternet/yast doesn't touch these files. In my system, all
the user/password/phone information is under /etc/sysconfig/network/providers.
stupidmode is something I need to look into, it seems, but I thought I have
a more fundamental problem, as I don't see such prompts in minicom either.
That's really worrying, because I need, or think I need to figure out the
dialin server at $ORKPLACE.

I'd like to hear it :)
