Well, I have added to adm group my user, and it doesn't work. I more or less 
work if I add the user password to to /etc/ppp/{chap,pap}-secrets. as Achim 
said. But, now, kppp doesn't hang up, but DNS doesn't work. I have to copy my 
resolv.conf to /etc/resolv.conf.

I don't understand why I have a lot of problems with kppp in debian. I used to 
be mandrake, and the user only had to put their user/pwd and the dns, gateway 
etc to his config file and nothing more. 

Are you sure that there's no problem with the post_installation script?

Best regard,
