How to setup up a mini ISP using a Linux server with DSL
Hi I'm looking to start a mini ISP for me and my friends because we are planning on sharing the Cost of a DSL line by creating a dial in server using linux caldera or any flavor of linux for that matter. The server would be a PIII 500 w/128MB RAM on an ASUS board with 20GB HDD. I'm not really sure where to start any help would be appreciated and links to resources where I could download instructions on how to set it up would be great. if you could also recommend any software we could use to administer accounts and login restrictions would also be appreciated. Would it also be possible to use the motherboard and simulate a modem pool with somewhere around 4 PCI modems in it? Thanks =)

Im not up on the details of how telephone exchanges work, but without somesort of hardware to control all of the incoming calls, i would assume that you would need 4 seperate phone lines. (if your in the UK, BT do a standard phone line for £10.50 a month, good if your only receiving inbound calls).
