Actually, I have exactly the same problem the original poster
described with the distribution kernel 1.2.13 and ppp-2.2-1.deb.  I
still haven't got the solution.  It seems that the distribution kernel
was compiled with a very old ppp package and hasn't updated when
ppp-2.2 was made available.  I also tried to compile a new 1.2.13
kernel with ppp support after installing ppp-2.2-1.deb but was
unsucessful with errors in the compilation process (something like
`incompatible pointer type' in ppp.c).

Using this kernel, warnings ``ppp0, ppp1, ppp2 ppp3 are not linked''
was displayed at boot up time and `cat /proc/net/dev' shows no ppp?

AFAIK ppp-2.2 is for kernels 1.3.x.  Where do I get a older debian ppp
package that is supposed to work with kernel 1.2.x??
