Hmm, what number do the devices start at ? They used to start at 32 (I
think), but this has been fixed, (since pre2.0.x (aka 1.99.x) somewhere I
think), if your devices start at 32, try makeing the first at 0, eg:
mknod /dev/ttyC0 c 19 0

and see if that works (open with minicom ...)

Have you compiled to use ppp ? Did you say yes to the ppp questions in
make config ?

It should be saing something like (this is from the modules installing so):
CSLIP: code copyright 1989 Regents of the University of California
PPP: version 2.2.0 (dynamic channel allocation)
PPP Dynamic channel allocation code copyright 1995 Caldera, Inc.
PPP line discipline registered.

in the boot messages (or in dmesg), (or only dmesg if it's as a module).
If you compile it as a module, you have to get it in the kernel, with
either insmod, modprobe, or kerneld.
