Personally I would suggest not bothering with Kernel PPP. Userland PPP is
definitely the way to go.
Hopefully Brian Somers (maintainer of PPP) will be along shortly to provide
some guidance, though I do know he's wading his way through a frightening
backlog of email.

I'd need to check my files (which are on a different machine) but they look
okay. However what you should be typing is 'dial ISP' if my memory is correct.
The other thing I would recommend is reading the man page. Whilst it's long
(around 30 A4 pages) it is detailed and should go a long way to making thing
clear. Also check out the Pedantic PPP Primer (
http://www.freebsd.org/tutorials/ppp/ ), another excellent source of help.
