I ran ADSL on 5 for a while great. In fact, I think it
works better on 5 than on 4 as the USB stack is better generally in 5 
than 4.
However, you do have to pick your version and it needs to be fairly 
as it went through a couple of breakages on 5 during July and October I 

I only dropped ADSL on 5, as I downgraded the ADSL machine to a lower 
spec that
I thought was better suited to run FBSD4.
