rp-pppoe on 2.6.9 (please help)


Hi everyone...

This is my problem:

I have slackware 10 installed on my box. Im not an expert on linux but i know a thing or two...
Anyways, Im running the 2.4.26 kernel and the rp-pppoe (version 3.5) works fine!
Im trying to migrate to 2.6.9... I compiled the 2.6.9, it took me a little to get all the right modules, but now it seems to be all set (even the sound works lol). Im using the realtek 8139 network adapter (8139too). And i know its working properly on the 2.6.9 because (if i switch the cable) i can SSH on other network machines.

BUT THE RP-PPPOE PROGRAM WONT WORK!!!

It simply shows the "." and after a while it say that could not connect.... And i've left it for more then an hour and still no deal... (on the 2.4.26 it will connect within 2 dots)....
I've tried to re-compile the rp-pppoe program on the 2.6.9 but still nothing at all...
Does anyone has ANY clue about this?????? Please, Im really ancious to start using the 2.6.xx kernels, but without internet, no way... heheh
Thanks
Ariel

Btw - one thing that is different, on the 2.4.26, when i do a lsmod, it shows 2 modules that use the 8139too -> mii and crc32... and those modules are not shown on the 2.6.9... maybe thats a clue??? Any help is welcome
