Ok, I got the routing thing straightened out. Thanks Steven.
In playing around with it I find I still have problems resolving

Most odd situation first. If pppd is invoked in a shell terminal
names (internet not LAN names) are resolved fine. If I then start
Xwindows the machine can no longer resolve names. It will still
ping, etc. using IP numbers, but not names. Why would that be?
If I start X and then log on with pppd names are resolved fine.
Why does it matter if a term or an Xwindow runs pppd once you're
running X?

I still can't resolve the names of the other machines on my LAN.
I believe that /etc/hosts is set up correctly. I wonder about 
the /etc/resolv.conf file though. Should there be a line included
that reads     
        domain  mydomainname

and then the IP numbers of SW's name servers? If so should the 
`.' preceeding the mydomainname be included? I have included this
line, sans `.' Would that help?

Thanks one and all.
