Question Cannot Configure DSL on Suse 9.0

I installed Suse 9.0 on a clean HD. I have a Microsoft Ethernet card that is recognized, but I cannot seem to get to my DSL modem. I have no ability to get online with Linux. I tried to manually set up the DSL, but nothing. I am using Verizon for DSL service. I tried loading the install disc, it sees it, but cannot open it. Is there something I am missing?

First of all I'm a total newbie...but maybe I can help!

You probably need a PPPOE Client Software to connect to the internet.

I personnaly use rp-pppoe.

You can get it from their website at :

I think you should download the sources because there is no RPM for suse...well..that's what I did.

Also read the readme file. There is pretty good and very important information there if I remember well.

Good Luck!

Thanks, I 'll give it a try when I switch out my Hard Drives. Using XP to stay online, will pull it and put in Suse when I feel ready to give it another shot.
