I'm using BellSouth DSL too, also with a SpeedTuch modem too.  I refuse to
touch pppd.  Perhaps you should go read up on modding your ST Home into a
Pro so that you can have the connection handled at the modem instead of on
your machine.  It'll be even more always-on-ish than it currently is, since
you'll carry you IP across any number of reboots.
