Cannot connect ADSL Debian


I have just upgraded from dial-up to ADSL, however, I cannot get (or even begin to understand) how to connect my Debian (Sarge under 2.6.6) machine to ADSL..

ADSL connection worked on my laptop under WindowsXP with-out any configuration what-so-ever?!?. The connection also works out-of-the box with Knoppix 3.4

Modem type: Netcomm NB1300

Consequentely as I can no longer access internet with linux desktop machine, I cannot detail here any dumps from commands.

what I have done so far..

1) My ethernet card is detected OK (found appropriate driver)
2) Using ifconfig eth0 up, and then ifconfig, eth0 & lo are displayed
3) I have added DNS servers to /etc/resolv.conf

From here I am completely lost. I just need a working connection so I can continue working!!!!!

Looking on the web-based administration page for the modem:

inetaddr (this is the IP address you type into browser to access web-admin)
Using PPPOa (I have tried to set to PPPOE re: below, but it always reverts back to PPPOa)

I have tried ADSL/PPPOE connection wizard in KDE3.2, it detects eth0, but cannot go any further.

Can anyone point me in the right direction. This is very fustrating as I know the connection works fine under XP/Knoppix

Thank you
