For some reason, my ppp daemon doesn't load up at start up. If i do lsmod, ppp doesn't show up. What do i do so i can use KPPP in KDE. I Have RH 7.0

Did you install the ppp driver during the install? You may have to recompile the kernel to include ppp as an option if you don't have it enabled at the moment.

Not sure how you would check to see if it is enabled without using insmod, and if it doesn't work it sounds like it isn't (do you get an error?). Did you try insmod in root?
