A little progress, I think. I am now seing packets being sent through
eth0 via tcpdump. However, it is still timing out.

tcpdump is now showing PAD* packets, but it is still timing out. 

Using the debug mode with the adsl-start script, some debugging output
is produced. This output suggests that the ethernet card must be
in half-duplex, 10 Meg mode. Checking this setting under Windows, reveals
it is set to "auto". I don't know how to set these values under linux,
short of supplying the parameters to the kernel. Is there are way to do it
via /proc? I checked the ethernet HOWTO, and it didn't say.

pppoe -A shows the AC name and also the MAC address of the ethernet card.

Should pppoe-sniff recognize the PAD packets? It is not showing anything.
Its blurb says it waits for the first PADR packet. 

I realised I was a little light on the details, so here they are:

kernel v2.4.2
pppd  v2.4.1b2
smz ez ethernet card
realtek ethernet card

Thanks for your help,
