	man pppd
	In the pppd man page, change Cryptographic to Challenge.
	In the RFCs, CHAP is expanded as...
	RFC 1334
	Challenge-Handshake Authentication Protocol

	In the pppd man page, CHAP is expanded as...
	+chap  Require  the peer to authenticate itself using CHAP
	       [Cryptographic Handshake  Authentication  Protocol]

	Since the RFC is the difinitive source on issues like these,
	it would seen that our pppd man page is wrong.
