Off topic question, but:
How much does a 7204 cost and how many DSL ports can it handle?

I'm trying to find a good box for use with Pacbell/Covad DSL. I'm trying to
get a ballpark estimate of how much it will cost.

We use a Cisco 7204 for our DSL and emerald works just fine.

In the Cisco config you specify the radius servers to authenicate
too just like you would for a modem nas. No different.
