how could name/password be supplied on cd for a user when it is not known
when cd is burned? and i would hope that who ever burned cd would not know
my name/password, which are what i gave when i signed up by calling in on
voice line.

already having a 2wire homeportal, i was told to use ppoe, vpi=0, and vci=35.

or am i not following what you are trying to explain?

and no, i am not trying to be a 'was', i am trying to understand what is
advantage of having to use a cd just to setup a dsl modem under linux or ms.

peace out.

to mess up a linux box, you need to work at it;
to mess up an ms windows box, you just need to *look at* it.
