PPP and kernel 2.0.36

I have just installed the lastest stable kernel 2.0.36 and PPP does not
work for me. I have compiled it into the kernel. The version is the
2.2.0 version of PPP. I have tried patching the kernel to PPP v2.3.3 to
no avail. 

I am using the Debian PPP package 2.3.5-2. I am running the Hamm version
of Debian. Upon attempting to run pppd I get the following:

This system lacks kernel support for PPP.  This could be because the PPP
kernel module is not loaded, or because the kernel is not configured for
PPP.  See the README.linux file in the ppp-2.3.5 distribution. 

I do see PPP in the boot up text, so the kernel does appear to be
loading PPP

PPP: version 2.2.0 (dynamic channel allocation)

PPP Dynamic channel allocation code copyright 1995 Caldera, Inc.

Any thoughts on this one? 

Thanx in advance.
