I couldnt find a HOW-TO on PPPoE which is going to
be a must for xDSL access . Is there any documentation
about how PPP interacts with the NIC driver?
About algorithms i felt that the book called data structures
in c and c++ by langsam & ... was real good (This is not a
promotion this is a personal view :) )
