Have you removed the boot-floppy from the diskette drive? It sounds like
you're coming up in single-user or emergency mode.  If you remove the
diskette and re-boot, you can enter passwd and your desired root
password twice to get your desired root password re-instated, then do
"shutdown -g0
-i6 -y" to reboot and order may be restored.  If not, edit /etc/inittab,
check your default run-level, and set it to 3 or 4 and re-boot again.
If that doesn't work out, post your /etc/inittab, the outputs of ls
/etc/init.d, ls /etc/rc1.d, ls /etc/rc2.d, ls /etc/rc3.d, and if you set
default run-level to 4, ls /etc/rc4.d and we'll proceed.

Do an id command to assure that you're really root.  Read
/usr/doc/ppp/README.Debian to find out all you need to know about ppp.
Use pon to start ppp (once you're sure your /etc/ppp.chatscript is OK).
Post again with detail on what you've done and your results if you
aren't successful.   HTH
