pppd problem.

I think this question was just asked before,
but I only just joined the mailing list.

I have a script file which automatically runs as a users login
script to start pppd on login. When I run this script from the
root login I get the standard garbage on the screen showing
pppd has started when a user tries it I get returned to the prompt
and the following message appears in messages
Dec 1 07:55 acepia pppd[216] pppd 2.2.0 started by user, uid 100
Dec 1 07:55 acepia pppd[216] ioctl(PPPIOCGUNIT): Operation not permitted
Dec 1 07:55 acepia pppd[216] ioctl(PPPIOCGDEBUG): Operation not permitted
Dec 1 07:55 acepia pppd[216] Exit.

Please bear in mind I started with Slackware Linux 3 Months ago
and Debian 1 week ago. If this is a stupid permissions problem 
( which I think it is ) could someone just lead me in the right
direction and not flame me for stupidity....

Many Thanks
