These are some notes I made last June( As I recall getting kernel mode
ppoe working required getting the module in the correct location):

           Install ppp-2.4.2.b3
rp-ppoe-3.5(./configure --prefix=/usr --enable-plugin=$PPPDIR)See
                Added /etc/rc.d/init.d/pppoe
            Ran adsl-setup
            Unable to have kernel mode pppoe work
2003-06-19  User mode pppoe working
            Symlinked pppoe S20 rc{3,4,5}.d K48 rc{0,6}.d K89 rc{1,2}
            mv /etc/ppp/plugins/
            ln -s  ../../../usr/lib/pppd//2.4.2b3/
            Kernel mode pppoe working!

Hopes this helps!
