Have you built in ppp support or module support?
If you have mod, then have you added the lines below to
/etc/modules.conf or conf.modules?
alias ppp-compress-21 bsd_comp
alias ppp-compress-24 ppp_deflate
alias ppp-compress-26 ppp_deflate
alias tty-ldisc-3 ppp
Which ppp-pkg are you using? I use ppp-2.4.0b2, but ppp-2.3.11 should
also work fine.

How do you connect? I use netcfg. No problems so far.

Be sure not having something like ppp_async/ppp_generic in drivers/net/.
If so you may have the same situation I had.
rsync -avz linuxcare.com.au:linux-pmac-stable <dest-dir> should help to
get a clean download.
