PPPoed is the Point-to-Point Protocol over Ethernet Daemon.
The RFC is here - http://www.faqs.org/rfcs/rfc2516.html

I also suggest that you Google on PPPOE and do some reading.

I read the man pppoed, but that is so cryptic I got nothing out of

What is the purpose of PPPoed?

Who are the typical users?

How is this different than using ppp with
'set device PPPoE:XXX' in the ppp.conf
