configuring openbsd 3.3 pppoe gateway

i'm completely new to openbsd, and i'm shocked that it installed over the wireless network (!!!) that i have in my apartment from its install floppy.

besides the shock and awe, i'm pretty clueless as to how i should set this openbsd box to be my gateway to the ADSL connection i have.

i've read a few snippets here and there that say "it's complicated to get pppoe working," but i think it might be easy (the link below seems to indicate otherwise). is there a pppoe client that ships with openbsd 3.3? if not, do i have to recompile my kernel a la the link below (section 6.9)?

thx for reading,

i don't use bsd, but if you have rp-pppoe installed there is a useful gui to get your connection up on the bsd box.
i don't know how to get the gateway configured yet.
