The installer does NOT do PPPoE (at least not last I checked). Use the
100M sarge install CD instead since it has base on it, or a similar
amd64 iso. After that you should be able to get PPPoE running.
Does the BIOS have a PnP OS Installed option? If so, turn it off if it
is on, since that setting often messes up the init of hardware (by the
fact it doesn't do a bunch of it).
