The netinst ISO (~ 110 MB) also included the base system, which has the
pppoe package. So at least after finishing the installation you should
be able to boot into the base system and set up your network connection
to install additional packages. The businesscard ISO however does not
include the base system, I am not sure whether you can use PPPOE to get
it or not.

Yes. Actually the "installation" is complete after the base system is
installed and configured, which you can do with the first CD. You can
also select to install additional packages from the base-config program
that is run near the end of the installation.
