Debian 1.2.5: Configure PPP

I have installed Debian 1.2.5 on a virgin system and want to configure
the PPP network device.

I have recompiled the kernel and get the right sort of messages during
boot up.

I can 'ifconfig dummy' and 'ifconfig lo' to install the dummy and
loopback, however a 'ifconfig ppp' gives me an error of 'device
unavailable'. Is there something I need to do to get ifconfig to
recognize the PPP device?

When dummy and ppp were compiled as modules I couldn't even configure
the dummy device:-(.

Any advice gratefully received
