	I've seen the online documentation on, but it is only 
applicable for 1.5Z.  I'll probably upgrade once I have a faster 
connection, but not now.  I have Verizon DSL and I'm currently able to 
use it with absolutely no problem on Mac OS X.  I simply have to setup 
connect using pppoe and enter a username and password.  I'm attempting 
to use rp-pppoe, but I've been less than successful.  Here is what I've 

1. Installed rp-pppoe
2. Disabled bringing NIC up at startup.
3. Brought NIC up by hand with

	ifconfig fxp0 up

4. Ran adsl-setup
5.  It says that it writes the file pppoe.conf into /etc/ppp, but it 
doesn't.  Instead I end up with an empty file called 
/etc/ppp/pppoe.conf.  I've tried entering the options in by hand, but 
I'm not sure of the format exactly.  I've already man pppoe.conf, it 
doesn't show exact syntax.

	Anyone have any suggestions?
