I would just buy web-config based ethernet router for this one....
D-link, Linksys, Asante, 3com and even SMC make them and
they're under $100.
Seems like I've seen a client for YDL on the ftp site...dunno.
Try that first.

Or try:

and get GUI LinuxPPC version. Might work.

You can fool with a PPoe client on the Linux box, but.....
prepare for a late night or 2 or 3 or 4......get the idea.

I don't have personal exprience with DSL, because it sucks.
Can't you get cable internet in you area ??? Cheaper.
Just as fast in the long-run. Easier. No PPoe.
