What you really want is to use the domain passwords.

So they are logging in on PPP fine, they just can't browse?  The PPP
level and the SMB/Browsing level are very different problems.

ms-dns and ms-wins are both documented in the PPP manpage.

It's not impossible.  See my paper at
http://hawkerc.net/staff/abartlet/comp3700 for information on using
PoPToP in a similar situation, but pppoe would also work.  Anything that
can talk PPP can use the MS domain passwords.  I need to extend the
patch provided to also work with plaintext...
