Connecting to Big Pond Advance using Linux

When you subscribe to Big Pond Advance (BPA) (Australian Cable Access), you'll very quickly find that BPA only supports a couple of operating systems (Win9x/NT/2000 & MacOS). So what if you want to use Linux? The answer is that you are on your own (well, almost). This article will describe how to get your Linux machine hooked up to BPA. Each step must be complete before attempting the later steps. There are quite a few places & things that can go wrong, so I will give a few places to ask for help at the bottom of the article.
