The number 4 above should setuid the pppd to root when executed by a normal user.
But you forget to say that this is a security hole in your machine. Why not say something like:
Make your self a member of the sudo group (Wheel) and the do something like: sudo <command> or sudo su - and your passwd? This is a much more secure solution then running apps setuid ..
Hope this helps,
