There are some problems with ppp-2.4.0 and the 2.4.0 kernel with
getting options from /etc/ppp/options.ttySx files. Try ppp-2.4.0b3
if you use an options.ttySx. Or use ppp-2.3.11 which seems to work
with the 2.4.0 kernel despite the 2.4.0 minimum requirement given in
Following the Linux mini ASDL howto, which seems to be a good place to
learn something about ADSL, ANT = ADSL Network Termination.
If you have a ANT that connects to a NIC on the linux box then it should
be easy (really easy to *say* that since I've no ADSL experience, BTW).
If you have a ANT that connects to a USB connector on your box then you
may be out of luck. But there are drivers for some USB "modem" support
in the 2.4.0 kernel source, and there is support for using a standard
serial card with a USB connection (for using PPP?).
If you have a PCI integrated ANT/NIC card then there is not likely to
be a Linux driver for it.
Good luck, and thanks for qualifying "yank"; aren't all U.S. citizens
called "yanks" by all aussies? :)
