Perhaps I'm confused, but why just use use one of the simple SDSL to ethernet
boxes out there? I bought a few for $25 on ebay. When they die I just
plug in a new one (and then debug the dead power supply at my leasure)

It won't give you the v.35 but you can't beat the price and simplicity.
Plus I'd rather use a delua than run ppp or cisco hdlc.

I run several over a bare copper wire I lease from the phone company.
Works like a champ and I get 2mbits. I never have to touch them (except
when the ps dies every few years).

also, didn't pairgain make a similar box? or att paradyne.

I think the sdsl firmware is really bits put in an fpga. You don't want
to do that unless you have the right test equipment, a test dslam and
lots of time.
