Unhappy pppoe through linux router/firewall

Ok... heres my problem, I have a redhat 8.0 box setup and is running the RIP protocol aswell as IPTABLES.
Eth0 is connected onto a switched 3com hub, MDIX enabled.
It has an uplink port at port 24, if i connect the eth0 cable to port24 i dont get any lights on so i connect it to port 12 (random port) and get a green 100mbit light on

I have 2 ethernet interfaces,

eth0 --local network-- subnet

eth1 --connected to ADSL modem-- subnet

my routing is configured as follows:

net gw metric 1
net gw metric 1

to test it out i connected another linux box to the adsl modem with the IP

I ping from a windows machine on my local network through to

my predicament begins... all of my windows machines use their own PPPoE clients to connect to the internet (as there are 4 main user accounts)

I try to connect from my machine and it says there is no answer.

IS there some other routing policies or gateways i need to add?

BTW uplink ports are for crossover cables thats why you didn't get an active link light.
