Using RH6.2, the following is required to be a sole KPPP user
1) PASSWORD PROTECTION
vi /etc/pam.d/kppp change auth sufficient /lib/security/pam_rootok.so to
auth sufficient /lib/security/pag_permit.so
2) UNLINK KPPP
ln -sf /usr/sbin/kppp /usr/bin/kppp stops KPPP asking for password
3) SUID ROOT
chmod +s /usr/sbin/kppp makes KPPP suid
