The only problem with this using an auto-loading serial module. I'd have
to, for example, run /bin/setserial everytime before I attempt to make a
ppp connection. Very inconvenient. For expeditiousness, I just modified
the appropriate files so that my /dev/cua2 defaults to IRQ 5, as per my
hardware setting. I think The only problem with this using an

another way to do it using /etc/conf.modules settings to pass parameters
to the module, but I have been too lazy to investigate it fully.
