Let's try that :

1. Kernel configuration : validate PPP option in kernel config (native
or module)
2. Download a recent version of PPP if you don't have and configure it.
	- For example : ftp://cs.anu.edu.au/pub/software/ppp
	- Run ./configure and then ./make all; ./make install
	- edit /etc/ppp/pap-secrets and fill in fields :
#client			server		secret		IP adress
your_login at your_isp	*		password	*

	-edit /etc/ppp/options
name "your_login at your_isp"

3. Dowload a recent version of PPTP and install it.
	- I recommend you to download this version : (patched for A1000 and
other bugs) : 

4. Try it !
