No problem -- just install the ipmasq package. This is how I have my
system setup. I provided a login for my family to use and they just
run 'pon' (or the scrIpt i made call dial-modem.sh that doesn't
terminate until the ppp0 interface exists). Regular users can still
run /sbin/ifconfig, it just isn't in their path.
