I am sorry I can't be a lot of help because I don't use ADSL.  I have 
broadband on cable.  But I can tell you that PPTP is not what you want. 
  PPTP is the Point to Point Tunneling Protocol used for VPNs.  PPPoE is 
a different beast and is what you are looking for I believe.

I took a quick look at my system and there does appear to be a pppoe 
package and a pppoeconf package available in breezy.  You might start 
with those and see where you get.

If you get this working, please document it for the future.  We never 
know when we might run into something new to us that someone has already 
been through.
