kppp doesn't start pppd

hgfelger suggested debug in /etc/ppp/options. This didn't help, but from his
hint I did discover where the pppd messages are going, to daemon.log, under
the control of syslog. Should I send them somewhere else for kppp to find?
There seems to be two problems.
modprobe: modprobe: Can't locate module ppp0
Quite right, there isn't one. Building linux with ppp support doesn't seem to
create this module. I have tried having ppp support both built-in and as a
module. As a module it creates ppp_async.o, ppp_deflate.o and ppp_generic.o.
What step have I missed out?
Second problem is
pppd: By default the remote system is required to authenticate itself
pppd: (because this system has a default route to the internet)
pppd: but I couldn't find any suitable secret (password) for it to use
to do so.
I don't think there is one. This is not an ISP, it is a company I sometimes
work for and I have to get through to my client's linux network in R&D via
the MIS department. MIS provide instructions for connecting various Windows
systems, but they aren't aware that there exists any software not written by
MS or any computers that can't run i86 executables. (The words `Dead Loss'
pop into mind for some reason.) Is there some way to turn this requirement
off and if I do, do I have to fiddle with my existing network connections to
make things work?
