Hello, I could not connect with pppoeconf to the internet after the installation of Debian Squeeze, I downloaded the complete dvd and installed with dualboot. The weird thing is that before I managed to connect with the internet, with the same pc etc, with ubuntu 9.04, which by the way looked exactly the same as queeze....
I had to install pppoeconf, and I got an error message, that something was missing, but pppoeconf seemed to function normally after that. have an adsl connection, connected with ethernet cable to modem.
Here for the experts the outcome of the ifconf command.

Thanks in advance!!! By the way, after the installation I could not login to windows!! eventhough Debian Squeeze detected windows during the installtion, and I had not overwritten the windows installation. I had to go to an internet cafe to solve this, happily enough I found the solution in os-prober and then update-grub2.
But a very bad start for debian squeeze I must say.
Hopefully this problem can be solved too, I looked on the internet but could not found anything
