This appears to be the source of the problem.  I commented out
the"connect" line from /etc/ppp/options, and now I'm getting a
different error message when I try to run ppp-on from my user

/usr/sbin/pppd: must be root to run /usr/sbin/pppd since it is not setuid-root

This looks like progress, but I'm not familiar with setuid.  Is
this something I can change with linuxconf?  Or is there a
better way?
