Maybe a bad advice is better than no advice: You should find a file under /etc/ppp*.

Sorry, i don't know fedora 8, and it may be that there is no graphical tool to configure pppoe. Your may also google for pppoe FC8 or something like this.

in fedora it is "pppoe-setup" for "pppoeconf". open terminal go to superuser becoz fedora doesn't allow normal users to configure pppoe. if it says command not found probably you may not have included /sbin in your path, in that case run /sbin/pppoe-setup and answer to all questions as you have done in ubuntu and start pppoe with "pppoe-start" command and you can stop it with "pppoe-stop" command don't try pppd or any thing as this is easy and convenient way.
