Debian netinst pppoe problems

The network installation for Debian doesn't seem to support a PPPoE connection. I've read some stuff about going into a 'virtual console' or 'second console' on the second boot and calling pppoeconf, but I have no idea how to do that. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

And then try pppoeconf, if that doesn't work, sorry.
