Yes. In fact I'm on Freeserve ADSL.
It uses the Alcatel Speedtouch USB modem which has drivers for Linux.
There is a script available for Debian which (supposedly) does pretty
much everything(except the kernel ppp modules bit) for you. Mandrake
has an RPM available. If you do it the Hard Way(as I did) it is quite
easy to get in a pickle with the modem though, but once it is up and
running you can basically forget about it.
Which distribution are you using?
