26<para>The Roaring Penguin <application><acronym>PPPoE</acronym></application>
27package contains both a client and a server component that works with the
28client. The client allows you to connect to large networks that use the
29<acronym>PPPoE</acronym> protocol, common among <acronym>ADSL</acronym>
30providers. The server component runs alongside the client,
31allowing you to configure other clients that send out a configuration
32request.</para>

112charge by the minute, it is usually good to have a bootscript handle the
