better than a modem is a router, easy install and you can connect more than one pc, but it's a bit expensive

Also: pretty much any modem with ethernet capability and if your isp uses PPPoE i would suggest a modem with a built-in router ie the Homeportal 1000s or Westell Versalink or Westell model 2200
this way you dont have to goof around with pppoe settings, you can configure DHCP

As you're in the UK, I suggest going down the ethernet/router road of getting on the net.
I found that getting my BT 'modem' to work with Linux almost impossible.

Alcatel/Thomson makes nice modems under the speedtouch label. The 510 series is nice. And your linux will see it as a router so that should be very easy.
