> 2.  Installed the ppp modules
> 3.  Installed ppp-2.3.2
> 4.  Configured my options, ppp-up, ppp-down, pap-secrets, etc.
> Initially, pppd would connect to the ISP, but would disconnect when
> pppd tried to get my ISP to authenticate itself to my system.  I found
> that fix on the Debian FAQ-O-MATIC, and so I added the "noauth" tag to
> my options file.
> Now pppd disconnects because it reports that it times-out while
> waiting for a response from my ISP to a request from pppd for a
> "config" format.
> So, is there any new ppp information available?  The FAQ/HOW-TO's
> don't seem to have information on configuring these options.
> Any help would be greatly appreciated.
