Description of problem:
There is a problem with kernel-2.6.6-1.427 (also with
kernel-2.6.6-1.383). Normally ppp0 (xDSL) is activated at boot time on
my box. But with afore mentioned kernels there is no way to bring up
the network interface ppp0.
adsl-start won't work too.
I still have to use a home-brewed kernel.

can you try booting with acpi=off ?
I've tried to boot with 'acpi=off', but this doesn't solve the problem.
Update to the latest rp-ppp package from devel (or C3-test1)
directory (rp-pppoe-3.5-15.i386.rpm) then it will work again.
this got fixed in updates ?
mass update for old bugs:
Is this still a problem with the 2.6.9 based update kernel ?
Fedora Core 2 has now reached end of life, and no further updates will be
provided by Red Hat. The Fedora legacy project will be producing further kernel
updates for security problems only.
If this bug has not been fixed in the latest Fedora Core 2 update kernel, please
try to reproduce it under Fedora Core 3, and reopen if necessary, changing the
product version accordingly.
