YAST2 should be able to set this up for you but if any additional commands are
needed, place them in:

/etc/init.d/boot.local

SuSE is different here, it's quite good though.
The network connection is controlled by SMPPPd
 not Roaring Penguin pppoe like RedHat.

You should get a little applet  "kinternet"
 to control it, dial in, hangup, look at data rates etc.
This can be set up to work from any computer on your intranet
 not just the one with the pppoe connection.
"kinternet"  and the command line equivalent  "cinternet"
 are set up with  "/etc/smpppd-c.conf"  and  "/etc/smpppd.conf"


You can set up DSL fairly intuitively using
 YaST2 : Network Devices : DSL

However the files created
 are more set up for on-demand connection.
Here are my connection settings:

root> cat /etc/sysconfig/network/ifcfg-dsl0
BOOTPROTO='none'
DEVICE='eth-id-00:11:2f:ed:c3:7b'
MODEM_IP='10.0.0.138'
NAME='DSL Connection'
PPPD_OPTIONS=''
PPPMODE='pppoe'
PROVIDER='provider0'
STARTMODE='auto'
UNIQUE='uniquestring'
USERCONTROL='yes'
VPIVCI=''

The key thing here is STARTMODE='auto'
 or its synonym STARTMODE='onboot'

Leave USERCONTROL='yes'
 I can't get the connection to work at all set to no.


Here's the file referenced by   PROVIDER='provider0'
root> cat /etc/sysconfig/network/providers/provider0
ASKPASSWORD='no'
AUTODNS='no'
AUTO_RECONNECT='no'
AUTO_RECONNECT_DELAY='30'
AUTO_RECONNECT_EXITS='20'
DEMAND='no'
DSLSUPPORTED='yes'
IDLETIME='0'
ISDNSUPPORTED='no'
MODEMSUPPORTED='no'
MODIFYDNS='no'
PASSWORD='blank'
PHONE=''
PROVIDER='MyISP'
USERNAME='[hidden email]'


As you can see I tried messing with  AUTO_RECONNECT
 but ended up setting it back to  'no'.
I found the SMPPPd AUTO_RECONNECT
 interfered with pppd's  "persist"  option.

PPPd is controlled by...
cat /etc/ppp/options
# /etc/ppp/options
#
# Not every option is listed here, see man pppd for more details.
#  This file is read by the pppd, it is an error when it is not present.
#
<snip heaps of mostly irrelevant stuff>

# Specifies that pppd should disconnect
#  if the link is idle for n seconds.
# 0 means no disconnect
idle 0

# Added by michaelj 2005-10-18 to keep the thing on the net.
persist

# Wait 30 seconds before trying to re-connect.
holdoff 30

# Specifies the maximal number
# of attempts to connect to the server.
# This is useful for dial on demand.
# Default value is 10.  0 means keep trying.
maxfail 0

<snip more even more irrelevant stuff>


If you can't seem to get connected,
 the log is in    /var/log/smpppd/ifcfg-dsl0.log
There is a debug parameter in /etc/ppp/options
 if you want more info.


Hope this helps, enjoy SuSE,
michaelj

No matter how much you pay for software,
 you always get less than you hoped.
Unless you pay nothing, then you get more.

THe Real simple answer is use an  Ethernet  modem/router system no extra
settings or software needed then     .
