RP-PPPoE trouble in Ubuntu Edgy

I just installed RP-PPPoE successfully in (K)Ubuntu edgy...When I enter pppoe -A in the console, I see a list of many ISPs...How can I create a connection of my ISP? Also when I execute tkpppoe from the console, it says permission denied....I think the graphical interface will be easier for me

Any help will be much appreciated...

Thanks in advance,

regarding the permission denied you probably have to run the command with 'sudo' in front of it, such as 'sudo tkpppoe'.
i dont know the program your using but type pppoe at the console and press tab afew times to see other commnads that start with pppoe. i imagine it would be like pppoe-setup.
hope it helps
