Default Automatically dialling PPPoE on reboot/startup

Hi, I just installed OpenBSD 4.7 and configured PPPoE. It works whenever when I issue the the "ppp -ddial pppoe" command. But, what is the best way to make it automatically dial on reboot/startup? Thanks!

This might be of some use

It suggests that if you use the kernel PPPoE it will start at boot. Some desktop environments also allow for the execution of commands at login. It might also be possible to start the userland PPPoE as a daemon in rc.local

Add the command to the rc.local script.

See the rc(8) man page.
