OK, I've solved the problem. It appears that perms on 
-rw-r--r--    1 root     dip            52 May  5 03:54 /etc/resolv.conf

was set to root:root so that kppp could not read that file. lppp (Libranet
lppp) was clearing that file every time on exit so that the file was then
empty when I tried to use kppp.

As you can see, I've fixed it now. 

Thanks for all the replies.
