change application permissions


hi guys. I am trying to set up a fedora installation for someone. they require dial up internet so i made sure that kppp was installed and it works just fine. the problem is that whenever the non root user tries to start kppp to access the internet they need the root password. How can i change this so kppp is available to all users without the need for all users to have the root password?

thanks for any help
