[Scottish] PPPoE vs PPPoA

Hello all!

I am new to this country, and had a quick ISP question.

   I've got ADSL service through Tiscali...and just to get started was  
using their little free router/firewall thing.

This weekend I decided it was time to ditch their device and install  
the PIX I brought here from the states.

This is when I learned that Tiscali does -not- support PPPoE, but  
rather PPPoA.  O'course, my Cisco PIX only supports the more flexible  
PPPoE method.  Grr.

Is this the case with all ISPs here in the UK?  Anyone have an old  
Cisco ATM device sitting around? :)
