The code solved the thing, I managed to connect with it as normal user, great! Sorry for bothering the forum with such basic things, I'm a downright newbie but linux is getting to be my new obsession, I can't resist asking for help whenever i have a problem.
Also thx for the link to the description of the SUID bit even though I can't understand a "bit" of it yet hahaha
Thanks again, you guys give folks like me a lot of confidence and strength to explore linux and call ourselves linux users..

There's a good description of the SUID bit right here on LinuxQuestions.org.
To summarise for your situation; you should execute (as root):
which will make sure that root owns the file, then set the SUID bit so that all users run it with root's priviledges. (By the way, the `which kppp` bit [note those are backticks and not regular single quotes] simply returns the full path to the kppp command, so that it can be edited like a regular file. If you know that it's located at, say, /usr/bin/kppp feel free to use that instead.)
# chown root `which kppp`
# chmod +s `which kppp`
