If you don't have the integrity to at least join the list, how do you
expect people to help you?

Anyway, Your safer to get a production kernel. 2.4.x works great with
PPTP, better than my experience with 2.2.x.  You'll need to make sure your
system can support 2.4, which means compiler, libraries, gnu utils, new
PPPD, etc.

--or-- You can figure out what files are not patching, and do it manually.
Thats something you'll have to learn sooner or later anyway - welcome to

Try downloading the stock 2.2.19 kernel, and running diff against it and
your Immunix patched version in the directories the mppe patch complains

of a so-called house of god, nor will I ever call someone my father who is
