Bug#279855: debian-installer: Support PPPoE

Package: debian-installer
Severity: wishlist

It would be nice if the debian-installer would include pppoe (even in businesscard) and provide PPPoE as an option when asking if a PPP connection should be created.

Right now I have to download the netinst-image (because business does not contain pppoe), install the base-system, give an local IP to the machine (192.168.), and, when asked whether I want to create a PPP connection, switch consoles and run pppoeconf.

I think this cannot be expected from users who install Debian for the first time (and who do not know the differences between a normal Modem and a DSL-Modem)
