This is just the Debian readme (README.Debian.gz) which is in unstable
that I was quoting. Debian readmes have a tendency of clarifying silly
stuff like this well. :-) The other manual to read in this case would
be man interfaces and the relevant ppp (not pppoe specific)
documentation I guess, but it's all quite dense. I could mail the
complete file to you if you want, or you can extract it out of the
package from packages.debian.org.
