known buggy kernel. Upgrade to at least 2.2.9 please.

go to /usr/src/linux, or where you're kernel sources are installed.
if you don't have the kernel source get the redhat package, or get the sources from ftp.us.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/v2.2/
type make menuconfig, then go to networking device support, and select PPP
exit and save.
then recompile your kernel with the following command:
make dep clean zImage modules modules_install
or if you are using lilo type zlilo in stead of zImage.
mind the capitol i in zImage. If you choose to make a zImage you'll have a new kernel in arch/i386/boot, which you will have to install yourself.

cd /usr/src/linux
make clean
make config   # answer yes to appropriate ppp questions
make dep
make zImage
make modules  # if you have modules
make instmodules  # if you ...

use
make menuconfig
or
make xconfig
instead of
make config
It would be easier.

I think make modules_install is the right make for modules.
