I can also confirm that ADSL for Linux works.
I got the rp-pppoe-2_3_tar.gz package from roaring penguin, compiled it, ran
it, added the adsl-start script to the init scripts and it worked fine
without having to modify a thing.
When the telstra guy came to install it from Windows, it like took him
practically all day. Various things went wrong for him and he had to get some
other guy in to help in. After they had gone it took about 5 minutes to setup
the ppp over ethernet package on Linux. I really don't get why people say
Windows is so easy to use, it just isn't true.
