Check the permissions of pppd.

bash-2.01$ ls -l /usr/sbin/pppd
-rwsr-xr--   1 root     dialout     84608 Jun 20  1997 /usr/sbin/pppd     

And make sure, the user who should be able to dial out, *is* actually in
this group.

You can do a "adduser your_username dialout" to accomplish this. It won't
break anything if the user is already member of this group, so you should
do this anyway.

BTW: Get a new debianpackage of xisp from if you
use a version prior to 2.3
