Looks nice.  Of course, once I start looking the FAQ over, I note:

a) "FIXME: Does the business service uses PPPoE?"  PPPoE is only for
single ips.  The business service hands out five static ip addresses.
I suppose it would be possible to run separate PPPoE connections through a
hub and a single DSL line, but I don't think they do that.

b) 6.1.2 and 6.1.3: PPoE should be PPPoE. (note RP-PPoE as well...)

c) People have used Starband with Linux by bypassing the USB port to an
internal ethernet port, but the bandwidth is apparently only slightly
better than a 56k modem if you don't use their Windows-Only software to
lie about packet acknowledgements so the "pipe" will fill up. Even then,
accessing a web page with lots of small elements is apparently painful.  

d) I don't know if it is a docbook transformation problem, but the left
margin changes in section 4.10.
