On the basis of what I now believe was malicious advice, I am out of pocket
for a USB US Robotics 56k dialup modem.  However, this device attaches as a
ugen device.  I haven't found a way to make ppp on demand work with it
attached that way.

I do not load umass because I am using hplip and it must be grabbed by ugen. 
Otherwise my kernel is generic.  However, I would be very surprised that
umass is necessary for the modem to attach correctly.

So I am asking again: does anyone have a dialup modem of any kind which
works correctly on 8.x to provide ppp-on-demand? If so what is it?
