Description of problem:
If no ifcfg-ppp* device is configured bevor running adsl-setup, adsl-setup
produces an device named "ifcfg-".

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Remove all ifcfg-ppp* from /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/
2.Run 'adsl-setup'

Actual Results:  After answering the questions:

Ethernet Interface: eth1
User name:          fake
Activate-on-demand: No
DNS:                Do not adjust
Firewalling:        NONE
User Control:       no
Accept these settings and adjust configuration files (y/n)? y
Adjusting /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-
Adjusting /etc/ppp/chap-secrets and /etc/ppp/pap-secrets
  (But first backing it up to /etc/ppp/chap-secrets.bak)
  (But first backing it up to /etc/ppp/pap-secrets.bak)

Congratulations, it should be all set up!

Type '/sbin/ifup ' to bring up your xDSL link and '/sbin/ifdown '
to bring it down.
Type '/sbin/adsl-status /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-'
to see the link status.

Expected Results:  Something like "ifcfg-ppp0".

Additional info:

First configure a fake connection (not on deamand, not to start on
system-startup). Move the resulting "ifcfg-" to "ifcfg-ppp0". Now start
adsl-setup again and choose to create a new device when asked. Configure the new
device to your needs and use the resulting "ifcfg-ppp1".
