I got it working but I'm not sure what the problem is.

I have the ppp0 interface configured auto in my interfaces file.

I power up my computer and then I do
ps aux

I see not one, but two pppd call dsl-provider processes and no pppoe process 
(a line like "/usr/sbin/pppoe -I eth0 -T 80 -m 1412" like I used to see on 
the other laptop)

root      2409  0.0  0.1  3340 1228 ?        Ss   21:29   0:00 /usr/sbin/pppd 
call dsl-provider
root      2785  0.0  0.1  3340 1224 ?        Ss   21:29   0:00 pppd call 

Solution is to kill both of them, and then do pon dsl-provider

But why would it start two pppd processes and no pppoe and how do I fix it?
