floppyfw ppp+firewall problem.

I want to make an old pc act as ppp firewall/NAT using floppyfw.
I already read the ppp and firewall+ppp tutorial from floppyfw docs.
I had tried every possible configuring way.
But I still can't connect.
Floppyfw even doesn't dial.
Am I missing some steps?

I'm still kinda confused about this line:
echo "OUTSIDE_IP=" in ppp-up.ini
And what should I set for USEPEERDNS variable? yes or no?

The client is only one and connected to would-be firewall pc with
crossover cable.
Anyway, Just how to make my dial up connection work using floppyfw?
Anyone have experience with floppyfw as dialup conn sharing, firewall machine? plz help.

If requested, I can provide floppyfw config files to be reviewed.
