Changing cable modum to ADSL modum.
I'm looking for a simple way for a windows-only user to change a
computer's network settings from a cable modem to an ADSL modem.

I suspect that she could make the change using the Network
administration tool of the Gnome network Settings, but since I'm

change. Any others?
I also suspect that I'll have to have her do a dpkg install of
pppoe for the network administration tool to work. Is that true?
Thanks for any help.
