Did you add the following aliases to /etc/modules.conf ??

alias char-major-108 ppp_generic
alias tty-ldisc-3 ppp_async
alias tty-ldisc-14 ppp_synctty
alias ppp-compress-18 ppp_mppe
alias ppp-compress-21 bsd_comp
alias ppp-compress-24 ppp_deflate
alias ppp-compress-26 ppp_deflate 

Do the following modules exist ??

[root at firewall net]# pwd
[root at firewall net]# ls pp* bs*
bsd_comp.o   ppp_deflate.o  ppp_mppe.o  pppox.o
ppp_async.o  ppp_generic.o  pppoe.o     ppp_synctty.o
