Seems like kppp is also part of the kdenetwork package. See the output  
of 'rpm -ql kdenetwork | grep /usr/bin' for a list of other binaries  
that you'll get rid of when uninstall the kdenetwork package. After  
that you could run 'yum remove kdenetwork'. If kdenetwork is a  
dependency for other packages yum will show you a list of packages  
that will also be removed when removing kdenetwork. If that all looks  
ok to you, you can proceed to remove it.

If you find that you don't want to remove kdenetwork because of  
dependencies or other useful programs in the kdenetwork package, you  
may need to look into modifying the launcher menus to remove the  
entries or even blocking access to the kopete and kppp binaries  
directly by modifying permissions if that is what you want.
