PPP client taking the IP address of the eth interface...

Hi all,
i have a problem here.. from my target board i am running the dialout code ( similar to dialup connection) to a telephone number, where a windows PC is configured to accept the incoming connections.. and also windows PC is configured such that it will allocate a local and remote IP to the client that will dial in to the windows PC... NOW, after getting the ppp0 interface up i am getting like this...

ppp0 Link encap:Point-to-Point Protocol
inet addr: P-t-P: Mask:
RX packets:10 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
TX packets:9 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
collisions:0 txqueuelen:3
RX bytes:587 (587.0 b) TX bytes:123 (123.0 b)

here IP address is the IP address of the eth1 interface of the board... and IP address is the one alloted by the windows PC... my problem is windows PC has allocated some 2 IP addresses and only one i am getting in the PPP link... and the other ( ) it is taking the ip address of the eth1 interface...
what went wrong ??? right now i am using these options in th /etc/ppp/options file
user test

do i need to add some more options to PPP...
please someone help me....
