Question dsl with suse 8


I know how to get my dsl connection working with FreeBSD.
I just go to the folder /etc/ppp then I change the ppp.conf file

just like below.

# ppp.conf: PPPoE configuration

# PPP over Ethernet
set device PPPoE:eth0
set speed sync
set mru 1492
set mtu 1492
set ctsrts off

# monitor line quality
enable lqr

# log just a bit
set log phase tun

# insert default route upon connection
add default HISADDR

# download /etc/resolv.conf
enable dns

set authname USERNAME
set authkey PASSWORD

now I would like to do the same thing with suse 8

but in the folder /etc/ppp
there is many files
and I don't wich one to alter to get my dsl working
and I don't know if it's possible

can somebody help me
and give me some examples.

thanks a lot

I'm not too good with SuSE: paste the output of
$ ls -a
here please.

I used rp-pppoe (Roaring Penguin) for dsl in was much easier than the provided tools.
