As I promised earlier, here is the options file I have used to get 
through the PAP at IIT.  Obviously, I have changed the passwords but we 
do not use a user name.

I am still having a problem with occasional disconnects due to my 
machine's PPP not receiving responses for four acknowledgements in a 
row.  I don't know if this is due to a hardware problem with my no-name 
brand 14,400 modem or if there is something wrong at IIT or if kerneld is 
just terminating things after a minute of inactivity.  I will continue to 
investigate and keep you updated.

I have removed the commented-out options and informative standard 
comments to save space...

Note that the password and user name are in the file called 
/etc/ppp/pap-names which contains two lines, the first with the user name 
and the second with the password.
