Slackware has hotplug enabled by default. Hotplug will initialize your USB drivers, mount /proc/bus/usb, and load any driver for a device connected to the USB bus.
looks like "lsusb" and "usbtree" allow you to list the connected devices at the console
, you could browse /proc/bus/usb yourself too.
What modules are loaded? (type "lsmod", and use "modinfo <name>" to get information about the module).
I've read that adsl uses the ppp protocol, you you should configure a /dev/ppp0 device instead of /dev/eth0 (but this is a wild guess)
