Well, with woody, as of 3.0.7, pppoe is included in the base system, so you
have to do the usual mounted/floppy install to get to the base system, then
you can just configure pppoe yourself, and continue on.

Mounted/floppy installs are only kinda supported at the moment --- you have
to switch to VC2 and do a little hacking with b-f's 3.0.7, but there'll be
UI support for it soon. (Actually there might be already, I'm not quite sure)
