PPOE for IPCop

Hey, is this possible? I have an IPCop setup connected to a leased line. Basically, leased line needs no authentication or whatsoever. From the phone line, it is connected directly to the Cisco Router which is then connected to a switch. This switch gives me the leeway to provide static IP addresses for the PCs if needed. Well, the gateway should be the Cisco router. Of course, one static IP is connected to the IPCop box. My question is, what if the other branches that we have only has DSL connection. Which needs to be authenticated using PPOE? Does IPCop offer PPOE authentication like what the Linksys routers used to have? I notice that most wireless routers such as DLink and Linksys has the capability to be able to connect to the internet by inputting their username and passwords provided by their ISP. Is their a way for me to do that in IPCop? Because in the Network -> DialUp portion of IPCop, I notice that they do not have profile for PPOE like what is written in the manual. The only option in the profiles is "This field may be left blank". Hope someone can help me out.
