help with scripting techniques for my live backtrack cd

hi all,
so i got internet working on my live distro (backtrack3) after so much of head bangin. but i feel it to be too cumbersome to setup my pppoe connection everytime i boot in2 the os. is there any easy way out? like making a script or so which i can run everytime prior to connecting to internet? or smthing which i can integrate in2 the os boot files itself which can do the job for me?

thnx all.

You could integrate into the os boot files but that would mean rewriting and burning the boot cd. Have you thought about putting the commands you need into a bash script and saving that onto a usb thumbdrive or a floppy?
