Yes, PPPoE works fine with 2.4.0. PLEASE read
$YOUR_KERNEL_SOURCE/Documentation/CHANGES and setup your alias
For example (my System):


# Ok, here we start with 2.4.x stuff !
# LVM 0.9
alias alias block-major-58 lvm-mod
alias char-major-109 lvm-mod

alias char-major-10-184 microcode

alias char-major-108 ppp_generic
alias /dev/ppp ppp_generic
alias tty-ldisc-3 ppp_async
alias tty-ldisc-14 ppp_synctty
alias ppp-compress-21 bsd_comp
alias ppp-compress-24 ppp_deflate
alias ppp-compress-26 ppp_deflate
#end 2.4.0
