Sorry about the post - found the problem and corrected it.
> I can launch PPP Dialer under "root" but cannot as a login user.
> Under KDE1, I did the following to give kppp the correct permission:
> 1) Removed PPP password protection by editing vi /etc/pam.d/kppp with:
> change /lib/security/pam_rootok.so to /lib/security/pag_permit.so
> 2) Change Suid root to stop KPPP from asking for password
> chmod +s /usr/sbin/kppp
> 3) Unlink KPPP
> ln -sf /usr/sbin/kppp /usr/bin/kppp
> This is not working under KDE2 (I know files are in different places).
> Also /etc/pam.d/pppd does not have the pam_rootok.so call.
> Can someone let me know what is now required for KDE2? Marvin
