Sounds like you might not have pap-secrets set up correctly, or it
has the wrong permissions. You should enable ppp debugging (option 'debug')
in ppp/options to check.

Anyway, my pap-secrets looks like this:
geoid * password

Where 'geoid' is the name of my machine when the ISP asks and password
is, er, the password, which I hid :)

The pap-secrets file is owned by root, group root, and mode 0600
