Upgrading RH 5,x to Mdk 6.x -> no problem
but now RH 6.1 and Mandrake 7.0 seems to be very differents.
a rpm of RH can work on Mdk and vice-versa but not the entire distribution.

have you tried to erase manualy (rm -f..) all ppp stuff of rh and than
force the install of pppMdk ?
It is also possible that this is a pcmcia module misconfiguration.
PPP and network work far more better on linux MDk6.1 than on WinNT on my
latitude CPi with Dacom Gold card.
