Hi Chanchao and folks,
Tks for your advice. I solved my problem and got the LiveCD connected
to broadband. I'm now replying the posting on Ubuntu LiveCD.
Regarding setup pppoe connection, I can't make it on System ->
Administration -> networking. I got it solved by running "pppoeconf"
on root terminal.
Tks again for your assistance.
