Assuming all is well and your hardware has been detected properly you should
just be able to open up a terminal and type: sudo pppoeconf
The utility will walk you through the setup. I have not done this myself;
perhaps Alex will have more details if you run into problems with the setup
Feel free to come by the #Ubuntu-ca IRC channel and we can walk you through
it if you think that would help.
