It seems you have read my bugreport not accuratelly, so I'm pasting some sentences from the bugreport:
Also you should add xdialog package to ubuntu main (and change xdialog dependancy from suggests to recommends) or, better, patch pppoeconf to use zenity.

When xdialog is installed then pppoeconf becomes not text-based, but graphical configuration tool, so I'm suggesting to add attached pppoeconf launcher and decide what to use - Xdialog or Zenity in Ubuntu Dapper, because it seems there are not enough time to teach gnome-system-tools how to configure pppoe.
If you don't have enough time to patch pppoeconf to use zenity I could try to help :)
