If the ADSL modem provides an Ethernet jack w/ DHCP then it's usually
even simpler then that. Just plug your computer in, fire up the DHCP
client and away you go. Both our local ISPs, Telus (ADSL) and Shaw
(Cable), use that sort of setup and I've never had to touch the
defaulting networking config, other then the firewall, on a linux box.
