yesterday I installed FreeBSD 5.3 release through a PPPoE connection.
I booted from the Mini Install CD. In the end everything worked out fine
but I had some trouble with the PPPoE connection. Namely I had to load
the ng_pppoe and ng_socket modules manually at the loader prompt. Isn't
ppp supposed to automatically load them on demand?
Anyway, I regret that it's still necessary to select a modem
installation and fiddle around with ppp to use a PPPoE Internet
connection during the install process. It doesn't look like a major
effort to me to improve sysinstall in that way. I'm kind of willing to
contribute such a feature. Could anyone familiar with the sysinstall
sources give me a hint where to start?
