help getting simple PPP (no LAN) DNS working


I'm just trying to get a simple desktop dialup setup working. I haven't set up any LAN. I'd like to be able to use ppp-on/off as a regular user, but for now I just want to get it working for root. I'm running a stock Slack 9.1 install with bare.i.

I've run netconfig and told it I just want to setup a loopback connection (for "modem or no net").

I've run pppsetup and given it the usual input.

I can run ppp-on as root and get my external modem to dialup and connect. /var/log/messages tells me:
Code:
CONNECT
 -- got it
Serial connection established.
Using interface ppp0
Connect: ppp0 <--> /dev/modem
Once connected, If I try to ping the one dns IP in my /etc/resolv.conf, I get:
Code:
connect: Network is unreachable
If I try to ping something else
Code:
ping www.osnews.com
I get
Code:
ping: unknown host www.osnews.com
Trying to traceroute the IP of my DNS listed in /etc/resolv.conf
Code:
traceroute: findsaddr: Can't find interface
Running 'ifconfig -a' lists eth0, lo, and ppp0. In the ppp0 section, there's no "inet" or "UP" lines present like there are when I haven't run ppp-on.

Thanks. Though, it *should* works just fine with the standard packages I already have...

{edit} Ok, I'm continuing this thread to the LQ-Networking board:
