Unable to connect to net through broadband in FC4.


hai to all
this is my first post.
i once tried connecting to the net through my broadband connection after installing Fedora Core Release 4 version.
I have the following configuration:
AMD Athlon64 1.4 GHz processor - Socket 754.
Samsung 80 GB HDD.
BSNL Dataone Broadband connection through Huaweii Sterlite Modem.
On-board LAN card.

I tried to configure the net through PPoE configuration in FC4 but couldnt do so.
I have the following questions:
1. does the broadband provider need to support linux based support.
2. does my modem need to support linux configuration to connect to the net through linux.

Now i have reverted back to Win98 SE after reinstalling Linux.
Help
