Ok, I got things fixed.  My modem actually did have a strap for IRQ 9,
and it was set that way.  I don't know if it worked with Linux thinking
it was IRQ 2 or not, because I noticed that the default setting (IRQ 3)
actually wasn't in use, so I just changed it to 3 while I had the box 
open to check it.

After that, I just used Slackware's pppsetup script and plugged in the 
responses and I was able to connect up with Southwind right away.  Maybe
it's my expectations, but Netscape seemed faster under Linux then W95.

Here's my question: If the /dev/cua devices are obsolete, why are they
all that's included in the rc.serial file that Slackware gives you?  It
doesn't have any of the /dev/ttyS* names.

Anyway, thanks to everyone for all the help, it always feels good to
get something working that you've struggled with.
