Have you aliased the new module name to ppp?

I'm using pppd just for simple dial-up from home, but I needed to add
the following line to /etc/modules.conf before pppd would load the
correct module:

alias ppp ppp_async

However, I couldn't get PPP to work when I compiled it directly into
the kernel.
