I haven't had any problems getting the MPPE kernel support to work under 
Debian.  In fact, Debian ships a 'kernel-patch-mppe' package that has 
worked quite well for me.

We're currently using this with a 2.4.16 kernel, but the package 
description suggests that it's been tested successfully with Linux 
2.2.19 as well.
