hi codvx87, well, i believe pppoeconf doesn't work in fc5... i've tried that already since that was one of the first things i've learned when i was using ubuntu before... and besides, pppoeconf only calls the configuration utility for the your pppoe connection, i've already finished configuring, and what i need are the commands to activate or deactivate the connection... anyway, i still want to thank you for replying =)
