Hey you mentioned ADSL router. Can you switch ADSL router to be in a router mode?
That way you won't have to do anything with your Linux, just setting ip address.

+1 to what unsigned_nerd wrote -- using the ADSL modem router as a router is a lot easier and more secure than running PPoE from your computer. Which ADSL router are you using and which is your ISP? The procedure to set it up as a router is almost certainly on the Internet somewhere.
