linux kernel 2.4 supports (for some flavors of "support", i suppose)
PPPOE in the kernel. i think suse 7.1 is the only non-beta, shipping
2.4-kernel-enabled distribution available at retail at the moment.
also, just try google. there are thousands of hits; the first page or
two seems to have all the information you might want regarding "pppoe linux".
