Normally, you install dip suid root, as the docs say, if I remember right.

1. dip won't run except in root

Hi, guys. I hope some linux gurus can help me fix the problem I am
facing. When I run "dip -v script" in users' account other than root,
I got the message:
DIP: Dialup IP Protocol Driver version 3.3.7n-uri (17 Apr 95)
Written by Fred N. van Kempen, MicroWalt Corporation.

DIP: tty: lock: (/var/lock/LCK..cua1): Permission denied
DIP: can't open - problems with locking cua1

But I when I run dip in root, it  works O.K. I installed Redhat linux
2.1 and this problem arose after I upgraded my ld.so and dip RPM.
Befor that it worked well.
Anyone have any idea? I rebuilt the kernel, I tried to rm
/var/lock/LCK..cua1, it did work.
Thanks in advance.
