Question driver for adsl modem

I'm planning on installing redhat linux but i'm not sure whether I can get my adsl modem to work.
It's a a360 external usb modem using ppoa. I have no idea who the manufactor is or what chipset it has. There wasn't much I could find on google but here's what I got:

Great Performance
- Full Rate: Up to 8M bps downstream and 640K bps upstream
- G. Lite: Up to 1.5M bps downstream and 512K bps upstream

Up to 18,000 ft loop reach

Termination and Service available
- RFC-1483 bridge (Ethernet over ATM)
- RFC-2364 (PPP over ATM)

Plug and Play easy installation

Bus Powered form USB port

Compliant to relevant ADSL Forum, ANSI, ITU standards and recommendations

The driver I am using right now is:
ADSL Modem RFC 1483 Driver

That's all the info I could find.
So will it work on linux?

It sounds like you've got the same modem as me. I've got a Dynamode A360 ADSL USB Modem. I've yet to get it to work in Linux. I've recieved the driver from the Dynamode website but as I'm a newbie i'm still working on how to install it. My thread is in the Hardware section. What Finnagen has mentioned might help you.
