This seems to imply that all dsl uses the abomination of pppoe.  I've
got SDSL at home, and would need to choose static if I was installing
on a directly connected system.  (Behind my woody system acting as a
firewall, dhcp would be the correct choice.)  Some DSL providers use
dhcp without pppoe.

There are also pppoa connetions, some of which requiere non-free
firmware...

With Microsoft, failure is not an option.  It is a standard feature.
