Connect to internet using pppoe on RedHat 7.3 ?

I've just installed RedHat 7.3 and I can't connect to my internet provider using pppoe protocol.

I'm using the software Roaring Penguin and it worked fine with Mandrake and was very easy to use.

RedHat detects my ethernet card very well. I can se it in System>Configure Network

I've seen that other people have had the same problem using RH 7.3 / RP but I can't find anywhere how to fix it...

I'm using an Alcatel Speed Touch to connect to the High Speed internet.

Anybody can help me with this ?

Thanks !

Neo, I'm not sure the newbie's aware of how to post on the forum. The search and reply function is global - there's no need to post to different forums, maxell.

Hopefully, as long as this thread is kept and the others ignored, it won't be problematic.

Post the results of the following command as root:

ifconfig -a


ifup -eth0

Please ONLY reply to this thread though. Thanks.
