what you need to do is change the permissions on kppp. Open konqueror in Super 
User mode. you will find the menu entry for this is in system>more programs. 
go to /usr/bin and sroll down until you find the kppp entry. right click on 
it to get the properties srceen. select the perrmissions tab and select the 
exec/others option. then try kppp again. 

Note: for changing perrmissions, which is what we are doing here, there is a 
faster way from the command line. If any one knows this please post it. 

hope this helps
