When you are looking at modes, check to see if you need to use
something like PPPoE to connect to your ISP. If so, do you have to
make the connection from your Linux box, or can it done on a router,
or the modem? Most firewall/routers will make the connection for
you, but then the firewall/router will have the static IP, and not
your Linux box. (With most configurations) It may be possible to
still give the Linux box a public static IP address.
Do not meddle in the affairs of dragons,
