I don't understand your question (or even what part of your post is a question).

Are you asking if Debian can configure an interface with pppoe? If so, the answer is yes. If not can you please rephrase your question?

Cheers,

Evo2.

What is exactly your issue? Is it that you are not able to configure debian for pppoe? If that is so, you should be able to do that with pppoeconf.

"Shouldn't": Do you mean "Should"? Is this a question?

I'm still having trouble understanding. Perhaps using question marks "?" at the end of sentences that are questions will help me understand.
