smooth installation completed. looks good:D

another probably simple question.

is it true that connection to the internet via dsl is that easy.

the instructions i have found are:
1. connect ethernet connection and it sets up automatically or;
2. for DSL
Right click the NetworkManager icon and click Edit connections...
Click DSL.
Click Add.

note: i now have southwestern bell dsl. they gave me a cd with windows software with the subscription. (probably full of ads)

is it really that easy? just plug from dsl box into ethernet card on pc?

again thanx,
alan:)
