Hi, Tony.

A good first thing to look up is eciadsl - it's a userland modem driver  
that works with a fair collection of USB ADSL modems. I'm ashamed to  
admit I ran a Fujitsu USB ADSL modem for quite a while and, although it  
needed some options compiled into the kernel (not sure, some of them  
may be in the default kernel but they weren't in my home rolled one),  
it worked very well. Provided I left DMA enabled for the hard drive  
controllers it was not a problem.

I don't know of any other way of getting USB ADSL modems working.

Best of luck!
