Verizon's DSL department seems to be very supportive of Linux and BSD 
OSes, and the modem I got from them 7 years ago was RJ-45 only. Once you 
get set up, you may want to join their 0.verizon.linux USENET group for 
any tweaks or problems using Linux on their service. (I never had any 
with Fedora though, smooth sailing all the way.)
