Setting the 'defaultroute' in /etc/ppp/options is not enough.  When I
installed Debian, I selected the defaultroute option for my network card. 
When PPPD would try to add a defaultroute for the ppp0 interface, it
wouldn't do it because a defaultroute already existed.  This prevented me
from communicating over the ppp0 interface.  To fix the problem, I edited
/etc/init.d/network and commented out the line that added the defaultroute
for the network card.  I rebooted, and everything worked fine.
