Please bear in mind that my experience is strictly limited to my own system
(7.0), but what I did was (1) download the source tar.gz's of ppp and
modutils (2) compile them - just to be sure that compilation would succeed.
(3) use YAST to unistall the existing SuSE rpm's (3) change to root and
intall the new versions.

I have a policy of only installing things that I have compiled unless there
is no alternative, - again this is mostly because I want to learn. I have
not checked if there are rpm's for ppp and ModUtils, but I guess that if
there were you could probably install with YAST.
