Unhappy adsl-start on Rehat 7.1

I'm having lots of problems getting my Comcast account working
on my linux box. I'm running a Redhat 7.1 on an intel Pentium II

I ran adsl-setup, and entered all the info. Then I ran adsl-start which just waits there and eventually timesout.

adsl-status says that :

adsl-status:Link is attached to ppp0, but ppp0 is down

ifconfig says :

eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:20:78:14:7E:A8

Running with DEBUG=1 and adsl-connect is gives just a little more info :

connect pp0<--> /dev/pts/1
LCP:timeout sending Config-Requests
Connection termindated.
pppoe: Timeout waiting for PAD0 requests.

and keeps repeating this.

The above tells me that the network card is setup correctly, but for some reason adsl-start is failing. I don't know what to do !!

I should also mention that this is a dual-boot machine, so my account information should be correct, and it's the same card too.

Any help would be GREATLY appreciated !!! Thanks in advance...
