The technique requires that you use kermit in "command" mode.  Go online to
the modem, and dial your connection.  To download, type "sz filename", then
escape back to kermit.  Run "rz </dev/ttyXX >/dev/ttyXX" as a subshell.
The technique is similar for uploading.  I did this until I could afford to
by Pro-YAM from Chuck. The Pro-YAM product is a much better way to go.  I use
it daily.  So do most of my office mates.  It is definitely $$ well spent.
