I have a pppd dialer from WvDial.  IT runs fine as root but when Itry to 
run it as me it says that the /dev/ttsy* permisssions are denied.

Is this a limitation with Linux and if so does anyone know how I can get 
access to the deviuces from a user other than root?

If you have a local start menu, AfterStep ignores the global one (1-7.x 
has 
a compile option that allows you to merge the two, I understand).  This 
also applies to the other configuration files (the blocking bit, not the 
merge option).
