The inphy0 device is just one-half of a ethernet device, specifying the
physical layer controller (which is often separate from the interface to the
system).  You should have a network card identified just above this (such as
fxp0, bge0, etc.)  It is this ethernet device which you should reference in
your ppp.conf to enable your PPPoE DSL.
