Can I make a suggestion here? Anyone who tries to figure out pppd in these 
parts and tries to train it usually ends up in a home for the bewildered. It 
comes somewhere between 'acid' (LSD) and heroin in brain wrecking capability. 
There is, however, a pppd list run, I think, from vger.kernel.org using 
majordomo iirc. try 'lists in the body of an e-mail to 
majordomo at vger.kernel.org. I had to get on to it when pppd broke 
compatability with earlier versions some time back, and some nice guy even 
wrote a patch for my machine! Guys understand this stuff there, and find 
their life's fullfillment in helping others out. 

I try to pretend pppd isn't there - it's wvdial or suchlike that I talk to.
