Hi, I'm a newbie too

Open a terminal, it might be named Konsole, Root Terminal or just plain Terminal. A black box with some text will appear.

Type in:

Code:
sudo pppoeconf
Press ENTER.

Type your admininstrator password

The questions there should be easy to answer. I have pppoeconf myself and just entered my username and password, then kept on pressing Enter. Mind you that's wrong.

If you're familiar with networking terms though. It should be a breeze.
