Dear Sir / Madame , 
I am a newbie at linux . I am using redhat linux 5.0 on a intel pentium
machine . I seem to have a problem with the pppd which is of pppd 2.3.3 .
After I issue the ff command : modprobe ppp0
If  I do : lsmod 
It shows  :
module     pages 
ppp          5
slhc         2
If I do dmesg , it shows :- 
ppp version 2.2.0 (dynamic channnel allocation)
ppp dynamic channel allocation copyright  caldera
ppp line discipline regs ........

So far so good . But when I use minicom , dial my isp and exit minicom
with alt -x-q  and excute the ff script 
which I have save as m.ppp

/usr/sbin/pppd  -detach crtscts defaultroute /dev/ttys0 38000 & 

it give the ff error message :-
this system lacks kernel support of ppp
.this could be because ppp kernel module is not loaded ,
 or because kernel is not configured for ppp. 

>From a dialer with a win95 kind of interface , named XISP , 
in PATH TO :- it shows an error in the 
Xisp utilites (xispdial  & xispterm ) 
/usr/lib/ppp             error 

After I do connect it gives the ff message :-
pppd 2.3.3 started by root connection script failed , unknown reason 

Please help me in solving the prob. Thanks in advance .
