Do you actually make sure this address gets moved to /etc/resolv.conf?
pppd just prints it on screen but doesn't update resolv.conf. IIRC pppd
creates a file in /etc/ppp/resolv.conf. An easy way to make the system use
this information is to create a symlink from /etc/resolv.conf to
/etc/ppp/resolv.conf.

Anyway, it would help if you'd post the actually error messages you get
from the command

ping www.linuxfromscratch.org

for instance.
