I assume you are referring to this howto, right?:

Hmmm, up to where did you get in the sequence and what are you seeing in
the logs? Did you compile the additional kernel module? 

Send me an email off the list and we'll summarize if we get this solved.  
It is a bit off-topic for sound and music.

I skimmed through the howto and it seems like the planetccrma kernel has
all the right stuff needed _except_ in the case of PPPoE connections
(PPPoA is fine), which one do you have?
