Well, if you should opt for a USB modem, specifically the Alcatel Speedtouch
modem, there is one ready on the ports: net/pppoa. The driver just had a
recent upgrade so you may want to cvsup your net ports first.

Everything is at http://speedtouch.sourceforge.net . I have mine setup like
this and it works just great minus the wireless part, but that part is
internal.
