It depends on the type of DSL connection you are using. It could be pppoe or pppoa. linux supports both so you shouldn't have any problems.

Have you decided on a linux distribution to install yet?

You may want to look at Kill Bill. It's a live install, meaning you can boot the CD and try linux without having to change your windows install. It has the ability to run many Windows applications natively in Linux.
