Automatically starting Kppp

Currently if I start up Evolution or Mozilla I can't access the net, bescause Kppp has not started. So how do I get Kppp to automatically run, then I run Mozilla, Evolution, or a general case of when a program needs to access he net.

Although I don't want Kppp to automatically connect, it would be nice to know how to set up an auto-connect as well.

write a little script, like :


kppp &

or for evolution or whatever ... and if you get really keen you could get it to detect if kppp is already running

check kppp --help for info on how to get it to connect
kppp -c chakkerz for me would work for instance.
