I believe it's dialup service for DSL lines (Point to Point Protocol over 
ethernet daemon? Just a wild guess though) So if you have a DSL line which 
requires the user to dial in, you'll need PPPoed. Otherwise, if your ISP 
gives you an peminent IP address, you can just set your interface to DHCP or 
anything else the ISP requires.
