Description of problem:
Hi I'm using a ASUS 7400 Laptop PII 300 MHZ with 224MB ram.
After some searching i found that adsl-setup no longer exist in the new 
version and thet I have to use the networkconfig program.
Wich I tried. It ask what kind of connection I want. I choosed ADSL I 
filled in my login for (planetinternet) and gave my password (wich you can 
read if you look in /etc/ppp/chap and /etc/ppp/pap).
I hit the button finalize and started konqueror.
Nothing happens yea a message telling me the url is not availeble.
When i start adsl-start at the command line.
I get a message telling me it can't read the /etc/ppp/pppoe.conf file"
Wich is normal for me because it isn't there.

Thanks in advance
Guy Forssman

Please update rp-pppoe-3.2-3 and redhat-config-network-0.9-1 in rawhide. It
should work.

Notice: please use ifup ppp0 to start the connection
