I was having trouble getting the /Library/StartupItems/ISharing script to work at all until I put all three lines: /usr/sbin/pppd /dev/tty.Bluetooth-PDA-Sync 115200 noauth local passive proxyarp asyncmap 0 silent persist :10.0.1.201 & on one line: /usr/sbin/pppd /dev/tty.Bluetooth-PDA-Sync 115200 noauth local passive proxyarp asyncmap 0 silent persist :10.0.1.201 & Now pppd startups up correctly at boot (before it was whining about "Failed to open /dev/tty.Bluetooth-PDA-Sync: Device busy"), which is good. The bad part is now I get a kernel panic whenever I try to connect using my Palm Tungsten -- a problem quite a few others seem to be having, according to the page at Macintouch: http://www.macintouch.com/bluetooth.html#nov7 sigh.
