Chance would be a fine thing.
I wonder do I even have the right packages. This is what
jumpgate2:~# pppd --version
pppd version 2.4.1
jumpgate2:~# pppoe -V
Roaring Penguin PPPoE Version 3.3
jumpgate2:~# locate adsl-start
jumpgate2:~# locate pon
I'm sure it's probably something simple enough, but configuring
pppoe is new to me and I'm a bit lost at this point.
