I've done the same upgrade: 2.0.21 to 2.0.24 on two machines. One
(moremagic) does ppp and I couldn't get it to work either. It seemed to be
some kind of locking problem (and I've also gotten "Sorry - this system
lacks kernel PPP support") once even though I can run it from the terminal
almost fine (after a 30 sec delay apparently due to login problems).

There is _nothing_ wrong with my binaries, as going back to 2.0.21 gets
everything working great again (ok, I admit, that's no proof, but something
is wrong somewhere :D)

On another machine (magic), 2.0.24 hangs completely as soon as I use the
sound module for my gravis ultrasound. I also left it running for 36 hours
or so and networking eventually quit working (I still had activity on my
network card light (3c595)). tcpdump would show nothing, and I wouldn't be
able to ping anyone on my net.

Hear me, there is something strange with 2.0.24

Marc, back on 2.0.21
