Mandrake 8.2 - CHAP authentication?


Hello guys,

I have such a problem:

I want to dial from my Linux-Mandrake box out to a Windows 98 SE Dial-Up Server (don't ask me why i use it, i just have to!). So to make it simple - on my (client) side is Linux Mandrake 8.2 with a KDE 2.2.2, running kppp (pppd), trying to connect to the Windows 98 SE Dial-Up server on the other (server) side of the line (line is POTS). I am using a common 56k PCI hardware modem.
The problem is, that Windows 98SE Dial-Up server requires _blank_ username and a password (password is not blank in this case), and it requires CHAP authentication. So I set up my kppp connection to use CHAP authentication, but when I enter blank username and a valid password and i try to connect, kppp fails (before dialing out) with a message "CHAP requires you to provide valid username and a password" - so it doesn't accept a blank username ! If I just enter e.g. a space in a username field, kppp dials out, connects to Windows 98SE Dial-Up server and then fails - log follows:

---paste end---

So, my question is - how to force kppp (or better said, pppd) to accept blank username for CHAP authentication ?

Thanks to everybody in advance !
