You're _almost_ there, but you skipped something at the start:
0) User or script invokes (i love that word! :-) pppd, which knows
which device to use, which speed to use it,and other details and
then spawns off chat to dial, which leads on to your points...

Choose an option? Huh?

Is this how you always connect?
Add a 'defaultroute' argument to pppd (after debug seems like a good
plan) and see what that does.

The reason you are getting all those ConfReq packets dumped to the
syslog is because you have the 'debug' options set on your pppd
command line. Drop it.
