I hope you mean 11.3 –  Sathya Sep 29 '10 at 11:59
    
You might want to be more specific. What DSL provider and what hardware, for starters. What have you tried that didn't work? –  CarlF Sep 29 '10 at 12:29

@chris is very correct. there is little point doing it yourself in linux especially if you have to ask (sorry if I sound rude).

However, for the matter, run yast -> network service -> DSL

or you need to download roaring-penguin PPPoE client:

Compile it, then run adsl-setup, adsl-start (to connect) and adsl-stop (to disconnect).

The simplest way is to connect your computer to a router, and hook up the router to the DSL modem. You can either configure your computer to use DHCP, or hard-code an IP address.

I do remember in the "bad old days" when you had to run software on your desktop to talk to the modem, but I'm pretty those days are gone.
