Why I can not connect to Internet?


I am running Xandros3.0.1 OC on the same PC with Win XP Pro. Connection to internet through Win XP works fine but whe I try to connect through Xandros I got following message: unsuccessful PPPOE initialization request.
What did I do wrong.

Seems to me pppoe isn't configured the correct way.
When do you get this message?

So, how do I configure PPPOE correct way? I am an older person and not at all savvy on computer. I would appreciate further guidance.More detailed the better.
Thanks.

Perhaps in a terminal or console, as root, you could try the command (without quotes) "pppoeconf", and see if that helps.
