sorry. i have too much faith in ESP i guess. this is the script that is supposed to run:

#!/usr/local/bin/bash
/usr/sbin/pppd /dev/caau1 modem crtscts 115200 lock asyncmap 0 defaultroute debug passive persist


It's supposed to bring up the PPP interface, but it doesn't. but running the script manually (not the command itself) does.
There is no references in /var/spooll/messages that the script was even attempted at bootup.

Why would a script not run? I have a script in /usr/local/etc/rc.d, I
did chmod +x it, but it still does not run at startup.



You didn't give much information there. Not feeling terribly psychic today, I'll just tell you what the manual says.

    o   Scripts are only executed if their basename(1) matches the shell
        globbing pattern *.sh, and they are executable.  Any other files or
        directories present within the directory are silently ignored.
    o   When a script is executed at boot time, it is passed the string
        ``start'' as its first and only argument.  At shutdown time, it is
        passed the string ``stop'' as its first and only argument.  All rc.d
        scripts are expected to handle these arguments appropriately.  If no
        action needs to be taken at a given time (either boot time or shut-
        down time) the script should exit successfully and without producing
        an error message.
