You may have to borrow a Windows box to do the initial setup. After
that, it isn't a problem. I have not tried to run the setup program
under Wine. But the only thing you need it for is to generate the
account information. After that, you can setup the DSL modem to
handle the PPPoE, or you can get a hardware router/firewall to do
it. I am using SBCGlobal/AT&T right now. It is fine with Linux. If
they ever port their account setup to Linux, you will not need
Windows at all.

Log into your router (see the docs :) and fill in the ppoe info in the appropriate interface page of the router. In many cases, it's the router that handles the auth. The "Windows" software that comes with the kit, simply does that (as above) for you.
