So I went ahead anyway and performed the suggested actions except
before each rpm download/install I first tested with yum and this
worked partly:

yum install dkms
rpm --install kernel_ppp_mppe-0.0.5-2dkms.noarch.rpm
modprobe ppp-compress-18 && echo success
yum install pptp
yum install libxml libglade
rpm --install php-pcntl-4.3.10-1.i386.rpm
rpm --install php-gtk-pcntl-1.0.1-2.i386.rpm
rpm --install pptpconfig-20040722-6.noarch.rpm

For the last 3 I received warnings about DSA key missing and users and
groups missing.

Now I am stuck at the "run pptpconfig as root" command...
When I enter pptpconfig in the terminal window that I created as user
and then did su - to get to root, the response is:
"command not found"

This happens on the line following the rpm --install of the pptpconfig
rpm.

Did I miss something obvious here?
Root is supposed to be able to execute pptpconfig, and it is
installed, yet root does not see it????

And I have no idea at all *where* pptpconfig got installed so I cannot
put an explicit path to it either...
