still trying to get kernel pppoe to work

Does anyone know of another news group or mailing list which might address ppp/pppoe problems? Maybe I'll have better luck there. In the mean time, sadly, I'm dead in the water; I'm afraid all the time and effort I spent building this system may be for nothing (except that I learned a good deal along the way, which is not nothing).
The last thing I tried was bringing up inetd, which I copied over from Debian as it does not seem to be in either LFS of BLFS, unless I missed something. Does ppp need inetd? In any event, it didn't help.
