but i want to use vgetty and all the docs talk about /etc/inittab i do 
not think this file exists in freebsd so where do i make my changes so 
that vgetty starts instead of mgetty

also my log file for mgetty.cuaa1 has some problems with my modem mabey 
you can help me with that too.

i use freebsd 4.8 and a usr 3com pci modem
this is what bsd sees for a dmseg
sio0: <3COM PCI FaxModem> port 0x6c00-0x6c07 irq 9 at device 15.0 on pci0
sio0: moving to sio4
sio4: type 16550A

this is my mgetty log mabey i should turn up my debug settings however i 
really hate to reboot my system
Is there a way to reset mgetty vgetty without rebooting as my isp 
changes ipaddress alot  which causes my lots of dns greif and missed 
emails and web hit etc etc etc
