DSL won't start at boot

Description of problem:
After upgrading from FC3, I noticed my DSL failed to connect at boot time.
As a consequence, many network aware applications, like the NTP client, failed.
Logging in, I could activate the connection from the system-control-network application.
I tried opening system-config-network, removing the DSL connection, (boot to feel safe), add a new DSL connection and reboot. But there was no change in the system's behaviour.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Add a new DSL connection, marking it to come up at boot time.
3. Don't profit.
Actual Results: The boot scripts didn't properly activate the DSL connection.
Expected Results: The boot scripts should have properly activated the DSL connection.
I have an ip-up.local script in /etc/ppp to do some system specific stuff I need. It works properly when I activate the connection through system-control-network.
any messages in /var/log/messages about the failure??
On a clean install of FC4, the system hangs on startup while connecting to a
dialup connection. If I disconnect the line from the modem, boot up will
continue. I can connect manually without problems. If I then shutdown, I get
the following message when shutting down the dialup connection:
Shutting down interface dialup... audit: *NO* daemon at audit_pid=1981
This is the first of about six lines; I can't catch it all while shutting down,
and I don't know where to find it if it is in a log file somewhere.
I checked /var/log/messages and /var/log/boot.log for logged errors.
I found only (in /var/log/boot.log):
Jun 23 19:44:29 localhost NET: /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifdown-post
: updated /etc/resolv.conf
This problems stopped occurring to me byte the time of the 2.6.12 kernel update
in a fully updated system.
Currently, my problems have become intermittent... I will wait to see whether
they are fixed completely now. I still get junk during startup and shutdown
when enabling/disabling the dialup connection.
does it help, if you disable selinux?

Sorry, I'm using Debian Linux now; I got tired of problems with Fedora. I also
no longer have a dialup connection. However, a kernel update fixed the problem
in FC4, but the problem returned in FC5. As of about two months ago, updates
had not fixed the problem in FC5.
