say more what happened, and you'd better look the system message for it. /var/log/messages

First of all check your /etc/ppp/options file
1) Your speed mentioned in the options file must be excactly the same with the speed configured in kppp!!!! for instance if there is a line in /etc/ppp/options thats says:
115200
then your kppp must be configured with the same speed (this was my problem as well the first time in installed KDE, after a while i found out that matching the speeds wouldn't kill my pppd)
2) check that in the /etc/ppp/options file there isn't a line containing:
lock
If there is one...erase it
