Or 'yum remove kppp kopete' if you want dependencies taken care of.  
But I believe the problem is that kppp and kopete are not individual  
packages. They are probably part of some larger KDE package, but we  
don't run KDE. You could run rpm -qf on the kopete and kppp binaries  
to find out to what package they belong.
