Yes, that is my name.

Hopefully, these (and -20000325) will be moving to 
ftp.mac.linux-m68k.org soon.

A couple of things.

First, have you run depmod?

Second, the ppp module is "dependent" on the slhc module. If you want
to use insmod, you have to insmod slhc first. I personally always use
modprobe <module_name>. That way, prerequisite modules are loaded
as required.
