Please don't.  This link is unnecessary and confusing.  Use /dev/ttyS0

Thr PPP-HOWTO can be very confusing.  It gives far more detail than most
people need, but does not cover the Debian way of setting up ppp.  Read the
man pages for 'pppd', 'chat', 'pon', 'poff', and 'plog'.  Assuming that you
are using Debian 1.3, edit /etc/ppp.chatscripts and /etc/ppp.options_out
for your configuration.  Email me if you need help.

Pppconfig cannot be used with Debian 1.3.
