Adding ADSL/PPPOE (SpeedTouch 530) as a known problem to the errata


I think that the "ADSL/PPPOE (SpeedTouch 530)" problem should be added to
the errata for pre-rc2 as a known problem:

This problem has been reported several times it seems, and just for the
record here are 2 bugs that show it:

The new errata item could be phrased like this:

  * Network configuration fails for computers using router modems like
    Alcatel SpeedTouch 530, that is some modems which provide both DHCP
    and PPP services.
    Using Debian-Installer with such a configuration is possible but not
    automated yet. The manual workaround is described in the 
    http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=265183 bug report.

I know other people disturbed by this bug too, they don't have filled
installation reports though. This modem and this situation are quite
common here in France.
