Hi, i have an ADSL line, i've connected my XP, and 2000 computers, but i cannot connect my iMac running OSX, im not trying to share a connection just to connect it on its own ,the line is working OK, but every time i try to connect the iMac i get "cannot find server"

Here is the instructions i got from my ISP.
From Apple menu choose "system preferences"
Click the "network icon"
Set location to "Automatic"
Show field set to "Built in Ethernet"
Click to select the "PPPoE" tab
Check the "Connect using PPPoE" checkbox
Enter" Eircom(that's my ISP)"in the "service provider" box
Enter "i-Stream"in the "PPPoE" checkbox
Enter the "account name" (login) and "Password"
Select the PPPoE options
Check to connect Automatically when starting TCP/IP apps.,
Click OK
Select the TCP/IP tab
Enter the DNS for Eircom
Then click the "apply now"
Ive followed these instructions but no joy
Any ideas
Thanks
