    You can mount Windows partition like that :

    About PPPOE, this should do it :
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install pppoe pppoeconf
    And then :
    Code:
    sudo pppoeconf
    Alternatively, you can install PPPOE like that :

    True that. Then you can use the alternate method I explained : just download the required file using a computer that has access to Internet.

    Or you can install pppoe (not sure it is needed) and pppoeconf (is essential) from the Ubuntu CD :

    A firewall should be enough. There are many, firestarter being perhaps the simplest to configure.

    Yes, there is a package for dc++ in Ubuntu, it is called linuxdcpp, and it is in the Universe repository. Just ensure that your repositories are properly configured : ->Desktop -> Administration -> Software Repositories

    You'll need to convert the RPM files to DEB first, like that :
