PPPoE stands for Point to point protocal over ethernet in this is the protocal that most adsl connections use.

To get your internet connection to work make sure that your ethernet card drivers are working. If your ethernet card is working just run adsl-setup and set up your dsl connection just like you did on windows. To start your dsl connection run adsl-start or adsl-connect.
