No interface ppp0 exists


I just installed Debian 3.0r2, and am trying to get my dialup working. I have a winmodem (Conexant, installed drivers I know work from a previous installed), kernel 2.6.0, and kppp.
I ran pppconfig, and entered all the stuff. KPPP, then pppd complains that it couldn't find a ppp0 interface. ifconfig -a returns only etho0 and lo. How do I get a ppp0 interface?

Ok, I created a character /dev/ppp0 file with mknod, but now I get a different error:

By default the remote system is required to authenticate itself
(because this systenm has a default route to the internet)
but I couldn't find an suitable secret file (password) fo it to use to do so.
(none of the available passwords would let it use an IP address)

Ho do I get a suitable password file?

Nevermind, I fixed this one by changing auth to noauth in /etc/ppp/options, and now I can connect (ie, kpp minimizes, the lights flash for a second, then turn red). I cannot ping google.com, and (while kppp is connected) there are entires in my resolv.conf containing the DNS IPs my isp gave me. What can I do?

I solve it cheking the chekbox "Assign the default route to this gateway" of tab gateway of kppp . It looks like this:
