No. This message is harmless and irrelevant.

Can't be done: ppp0 does not exist until the ppp link comes up.

Exactly what did you do here? You should have disabled the default route
and added the network and interface addresses. This what I have in
/sbin/ifconfig eth0 192.168.1.1
/sbin/route add -net 192.168.1.0 device eth0
Your routing table looks very strange: as if you have given your ethernet
interface and the ppp interface the same address. The only place you
should put the ppp addresses xxx.yy.zzz.ww and aaa.bb.ccc.1 is in
/etc/ppp/peers/provider. Give the ethernet card a non-routed address such
as 192.168.1.1 and give other machines on your LAN address on the
