Could you check a couple of things please? The error messages you are 
getting are coming from pppd, which is called by both those dialler 

First, could you check the output of "ls -al /usr/sbin/pppd"? If pppd is 
kept in a different place on RH9, try locate or slocate to find it. 

Second, could you check the contents of your /etc/ppp/options file?
