adsl-setup or adsl-start not found as user!

Dear Friends
I am from India and use BSNL's broadband service. I have configured D-link adsl modem on FC4 successfully. But, I can connect to the internet using adsl-start command only as root , although, I configured pppoe (using adsl-setup command) to allow normal user to connect to internet. How can I use adsl-start command as an user?
