PPPD/AUTOPPP and MGETTY problem



hello, I am having a problem with my PPPD - AutoPPP and I think the problem is PAM related.  When I dialin remotely with telix and login at the 'hostname login:' prompt I can enter my username and password fine, however, when I use windows 9x and connect with AutoPPP with mgetty 1.14 I get invalid password.   I think the problem is either permissions and the pppd doesnt allow the user to run it but I have tried all sorts of permissions.
 
Chmod u+s pppd
chmod 4775 pppd
chmod 1771 pppd
 
argh the list is endless and I even put pppd in its own group, the users group and the bin group, nothing works.
I have tried shadow on or off same result.  Tried pap-secrets file so it reads passwords from /etc/passwd like it is suppost to be still. <sigh>
 
here is my /var/log/messages, it may help.
