I think the answer to your question is to look at Chapter 18 of the
Handbook. Your local copy can be found in /usr/share/doc/. A summary
of that chapter indicates that all you need to do is set up a ppp.conf
and the necessary netgraph modules will be loaded.

You can find some relevant examples in:


Someone dial 911. My bling-bling was stolen and smuggled into Syria.
