I got a couple of emails from people suggesting I try the "noauth" option
to pppd. The idea is that I don't want my machine trying to verify that
it actually got the right machine on the other end. I haven't had a
chance to try it yet, my machine is in pieces on my desk waiting on
a better serial card. 

See if that does the trick.
