Hi there.
Ultimate noob (to all things linux) here, trying to configure my internet connection on Ubuntu 8.04.1
I had to come boot back to Windows a few times to download the pppoe package and look-up some old threads to see if I can get it going, but still no dice. What I usually do in Windows is disable the TCP/IP for that ethernet adapter (because of whatever I can't connect when it's enabled there) and create a PPPoE connection to the service "profi-max" with the user name "coladict8823" and my password accordingly. I tried setting up a connection under Ubuntu using pppoeconf, but... well I don't know what's wrong with it.
here's some of what you'd probably ask me for.

eth1 is the currently unplugged second ethernet adapter I used to use to share my internet with my PS3.
You can see some packets received in eth0 because there's some other computers on the network also connected the same way.
I took a look at that dsl-provider file and I didn't see the password pppoeconf asked me for, neither did I see a field for the service name.
