wait, why not just take the ethernet cable from the inside interface on 
your existing modem, connect it to a 2nd 'outside' NIC on your BSD box 
with a driver that's known to work, and save $100+ on a new modem?

you mentioned "cabling inconvenience" before, but i don't see enough 
inconvenience to warrant > $100 expenditure.  maybe i missed something, 
wouldn't be the first time...  but i'm doing DSL with ipfw/natd at home 
using multiple NICs (outside, inside, wireless)...  and it works well.
