Is PPP compiled into your kernel or is it a module? Try compiling with ppp
as a module if you haven't already...
PADT is a common result of bad username/password, or occasionally on new
connections when Tel$tra hooks you up to the wrong ADSL provider... You
don't get PADT unless you're connected to a DSLAM, so PADT is normally a
good sign on new connections.
Merry Xmas ;)
