I use ppp, but I always sudo to use ppp, i.e. at the command line, type
'sudo pppd' are you can just su to root and then do it. I was under the
impression that it is a bad idea to be able to have any user have
permissions to ppp.  I forget why, I am sure someone told me a while, I am
sure something about security.  Maybe someone else knows?
