Paul,
   I am using the same distribution here.  It includes a user mode PPP
which does handle the dialing and configuration stuff.  I had some trouble
getting to work initially, but as a matter of fact, I do happen to be using
it right this minute.  There is also support for ppp which can be compiled
into the kernel, but I find the user mode ppp more than acceptable, and the
performance is quite good.  Just type 'ppp' to start the program.  You'll
need to edit the ppp.conf file for your machine and ISP, but it works well.

Paul
