If you open the FreePPP control panel, you'll see a check box for 
disabling auto connect. This will cure the problem. What's happening is 
that Mma has a copy protection scheme that checks the network every time 
it starts up to see if there's another copy of the kernel with the same 
license number running. It's a bug that it also tried to initialize 
TCP/IP instead of just Appletalk.

This bug is fixed in 2.2.2.
