Maybe this is too obvious to suggest, but could it be that the ppp module isn't
being loaded or that you forgot to recompile your kernel 
with ppp support?  I think what you described is exactly what happens
when ppp isn't compiled in.

I once recompiled my kernel 3 or 4 times (on a 486!), thinking I had
got the options wrong, when I'd just been messing up the part where
I re-ran lilo.  D'oh!
