resolv.conf.tail and pppd

I wonder about resolv.conf.tail
It works on my wireless but not on pppd connections.
I use current and wicd for wireless with dhcpcd.

How can i make it work with "pppd call foo" and kppp

I think that you may may use ppoe:

This is from notes:

The modem's IP is
Set a suitable IP address on eth0, e.g.
Avoid and
Set a subnet mask

# ifconfig eth0 netmask up

Then start pppoe-setup:

# pppoe-setup

Enter your username
Enter your password
For DNS, choose "server"

That's it.
Then start pppoe:

# pppoe-start
