options file looks OK.

Netbeui??? Netbeui has nothing to do with establishing a ppp/pptp based
tunnel. Besides, netbeui is a non routable protocol. ppp/pptp establishes a
tcp/ip based tunnel.

Have you added the following to your /etc/modules.conf file???

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

Does your linux kernel/ppp support mppe. i.e. Does the ppp_mppe.o module
