kernel tree)
    copy your .config back into the /usr/src/linux* directory
    make menuconfig (just enter and then exit telling it to save--so that
the sub-makefiles will be created)
    make dep clean install (to reinstall the kernel--backup the old one from
/boot/vmlinuz just in case)
    make modules modules_install
Reboot (see notes below)

Since your /boot/vmlinuz file is created by the kernel install, make sure
your /etc/lilo.conf file points to /boot/vmlinuz as the kernel, instead of
the default longer version-specific filename--otherwise you will keep
booting up on the old kernel without the ppp symbols).

One thing to check before you go through all of the above is to make sure
that ppp is built as a module in your kernel config.  :-)
