[Replying to the original poster]
pppoe is started by pppd, you shouldn't launch it directly. The Debian
way of doing this is to simply rename /etc/ppp/no_ppp_on_boot to
/etc/ppp/ppp_on_boot and customize as needed. Mine looks like this:
ifconfig eth1 up 0.0.0.0 mtu 1500 -arp
$PPPD call provider
Of course, pppd needs a /etc/ppp/peers/provider file as usual. Here's
pty "pppoe -I eth1 -T 80 -m 1452 -p /var/run/pppoe.pid"
This is for dial-on-demand. BTW: rp-pppoe is actually in Debian, the
deb is simply called pppoe.
