You should be able to setup Linux on any connection that you can setup
Win95 on, provided that the ISP does not use some weird proprietary
Win95 software for you to connect. I had an ADSL connection and it
worked fine with Linux. What the ISP gave me was the modem, the IP info
and a network card. If that's what you get it should be easy to do. You
simply need to configure your linux networking using the IP info given
to you ( you will need to install the network card on your linux box as
well, but that is not hard...)
The TCP/IP info you need is:
- IP address
- Primary DNS server
- Secondary DNS server
- Host Name
- Domain, or SubDomain name
All of these should be provided by your ISP, if you use dynamic IP, then
you're getting ripped off on your DSL connection and I can't help you.
Any decent DSL connection will come with a static IP and you should not
have to worry about stupid setups like DHCP...
