To run /usr/sbin/pppd, they just need dip.  dialout might not be
necessary, and lets them use any /dev/ttyS*, which you might not
want.  Experiment.  (I don't use pon, so I don't know about it.)

This suggests something I've seen on this list before; check the
permissions on /etc/resolv.conf, they should be -rw-r--r--.  Can
normal users use IP addresses?
