[CentOS] setting up incoming PPP on centos 4.4

hi gang!

I'm interested in setting up incoming PPP on a system at work that has
a fresh (not upgrade) Centos 4.4 on it.

All the documentation I've found for that shows using mgetty to do it, and
seems pretty straightforward.

However, that machine doesn't have a binary named mgetty anywhere.

It does have a mgetty-sendfax RPM installed, but it does not provide a
binary named mgetty.

"yum -list available | grep -y getty" shows no additional packages I could
use to obtain it.

so, how does one set up incoming PPP on Centos 4.4?

(I've searched the RH knowledgebase and all I found there that came close
was a very nice document on doing it on RHEL 3, which shows how to do it
with mgetty. Catch 22.)

Thanks!
