Creating a shortcut to a PPoE connection...

Greetings all,

I am using a PPoE connection to the Internet. The connection works
perfectly, however, I would like to create a shortcut on my desktop that
initializes the connection. So far the only way that I can create the
connection is through:

Configure Your Computer ( Mandrake Control Center, which requires root
access ) --> Network & Internet --> DrakConnect --> and Pushing the
connect button in the dialogue window.

Subsequently, another method is to create the connection in a manner
that accesses the connection at boot up. Which, takes a very long time
in my opinion.

Does anyone know of a way to create a shortcut to a specific connection
profile on the desktop, without having to use root access and without
loading the connection at boot.

This would be especially nice for when/if I ever had to use multiple PPoE connections

Regards and Thanks in advance,
