I want to install pppoe server for the first time. I searched and found these steps.

A. Configuration files:
4. Change My configurationCreat a back up file after change.)
1- #pico /etc/PPP/options
Add this lines:
2- #pico /etc/PPP/pppoe-server-options
Add this lines:
lcp-echo-interval 60
lcp-echo-failure 5
ms-dns a.b.c.d
logfile /var/log/pppd.log
3- #pico /etc/PPP/chap-secrets
Add this lines:
"eagle" * "eagle"
"test" * "testpass"
- save this files.
B. Run the Server by this command:
pppoe-server -m 1412 -N 330 -I eth3 -C hurlevent -L -R -S adsleagle -F

C. Side Cleint:
in WindowsXp creat new connection and choose broadband connection
(PPPoE) and login with username and password:
-test / testpass
-eagle /eagle

I have already a running system. I want to install this service without troubling any other service (iptables, dhcp, DNS). Any comments about this howto? What i do if i want to first install and get all clients authorized means to ommit step C.

DHCP is a different service and pppoe is a different one. Install DHCP server for dhcp services and pppoe server for pppoe services.

I have some basic questions regarding pppoe

- I have two interfaces eth0 and eth1, on which interface i have to bind pppoe. eth0 in for LAN eth1 is for Internet?

- how i can run both pppoe and dhcp together or i cant?

i haven't used pppoe for several years, so i can't help with that. for dhcp, you can configure it to listen on one or more interfaces. in ubuntu, you list the interfaces you want it to listen to in /etc/default/dhcp3-server. if your run dhcpd manually, just type "dhcpd eth0".

when you have a pppoe server you don't need a dhcp server. Why you need a dhcp server then??

Thanx Lambda and x2ogen.

Actually I want to assign IPs everyone as before so that clients dont see any change and not get troubled. Can i assign MAC-based static IPs on pppoe, like i do in dhcp? This is required for my setup. otherwise I will have to change manu things.

Ont more question
I have two interfaces eth0 and eth1, on which interface i have to bind pppoe. eth0 in for LAN eth1 is for Internet?

you have to bind pppoe on your lan interface which is eth0 in your case. and in pppoe you can assign users a static ip as per their username basis. so simply you can bind mac address with username and username with a static ip of your own wish.
