Hi Richard,This was one of those buzz-wordy type things a few years ago, and some of the big consumer network device companies put out product. I didn't hear about any of them reaching 100Mbit/s, though - and I'd be really surprised if they did, given the number of pairs available in your standard phone line (CAT3, as others have mentioned).
You will need special hardware, as listed on the homepna.org site you linked, and I'm not sure what linux support is like. The equipment would also need to be AUSTel certified to be legal in australia (Perhaps not for a PABX system? Dunno if it would even work in this environment)
Cheers, MattP.S. If it's not AUSTel certified, but you want to take the risk, you'd want to know the difference between the US phone network (voltage, etc), and the australian one.
