Yes there is - in fact b/c of your email last night i compiled a 2.4.20
kernel and followed the tldp howto:
http://www.ibiblio.org/pub/Linux/docs/HOWTO/other-formats/html_single/IP-Masquerade-HOWTO.html

I use rp-pppoe for my DSL connection so I also included the options
found in it:
tar tzvf rp-pppoe-3.5.tgz *doc*KERNEL*

 rp-pppoe-3.5/doc/KERNEL-MODE-PPPOE

It works o.k. for me.
