    We probably need to know more.

    What kind of modem is it? Is is an internal or external one? If it is internal, is is a winmodem or is it fully hardware? If it is a winmodem, who made it and do you have the drivers installed. Mostly you will need to find drivers (or buy them). More winmodem information can be found at http://www.linmodems.org/

    Next up which device is KPPP looking for. If it is /dev/modem or similar, you will need to set up a symbolic link to your actual modem device. As root:

    ln -s /dev/<modem device> /dev/modem

    If kppp produces anything in the log, it may help if you posted that too.
