Dumb question - is the modem set up to do the PPPoE connection for
you. If not, then you had FC4 set up to use a PPPoE connection, and
you need to set up FC5 the same way. When using a PPPoE connection
directly from the Linux machine, eth0 will not have an IP address.
I know that sounds strange, but the PPPoE connection has the IP
address. If I understand it correctly, the Ethernet connection in
the PPPoE link is not using TCP/IP, so it does not have an IP
address.
