One I can answer in a sentence or two.  Joy.

I deleted the lock option from ppp-options to appease kppp (which I can
run as su, but I haven't for the life of me any idea how to install the
suid bitset it wanted me to). 

The entry for LCK..modem in /var/lock is 01290 kppp user, which it should
be, since I'm using kppp right now.

The problem lies somewhere between eth0 (my computer) and eth1 (the mac 4
feet away).  They don't want to talk to each other.  Silly machines.

at least able to connect through linux today...

Curiosity kills people.  Dead people too.
