[Ubuntu Chicago] PPP & Mgetty on the same port at the same time possible?

Does anyone do ppp to another computer using the modem? (No Internet)
I have checked my modem that it works properly for dialing out using minicom. (This worked great at one time)
I have installed mgetty so that I have the ability for the modem to answer incoming computers.
This works just fine.
I am now trying to use ppp to dial out of my Linux box using this same modem port to another computer. (I am not using the Internet.)
And since I have installed the mgetty. I don't have the ability to dial out using minicom anymore.
I tried minicom to see if I can dial out, and I get my Ubunutu login message, and it just stays there with several blank lines.
I am using Ubuntu intrepid 8.10. kernel 2.6.27-14.
My best guess is because I have the mgetty on I am getting a login instead of the modem.
Is is possible to have a ppp connection with a mgetty on the same serial port? If so, can you please point me in the right direction of what I am missing.
Thanks in advance.
