Please be alot more specific. What exactly is the problem, why won't it work, what type of modem you have (usb, ethernet). Can't do anything with what you posted before. Also the name of the modem would be helpful.

Is your network card up and working? To check just do # ifconfig. It should return something like eth0. You need to get this up and running before you use rp-pppoe (the program that uses adsl-setup, adsl-start, adsl-status etc...). Otherwise pppoe will have nothing to communicate through.
