What is CBOS supposed to be?  I simply connect the management cable to the
675 and use a terminal program (I use kermit).  Just make sure you turn off
the hardware flow control or the session will lock up (the 675 doesn't do
flow control).

I don't know, I've never used the cdrom.

The WAN link light will go from blinking to solid when the connection is up.
Usually this takes around 12 seconds.  If it's always blinking, either
you need to set up your PPP settings, or QWest is having some DSL issues
on your line.

Once you connect to it using minicom or whatever (again, make SURE you
disable hardware flow control *BEFORE* typing anything to the 675),
FRII provides the following instructions:

	- set ppp wan0-0 ipcp
	- set ppp wan0-0 dns
	- set dhcp serv pool 0 dns
	- set dhcp serv pool 0 sdns
	- set ppp wan0-0 login <username at frii.com>
	- set ppp wan0-0 pass <password>
	- set ppp restart enable
	- set dhcp server enable
	- set nat enable
	- write
	- reboot

Note that the DNS servers above are FRII's, you'll probably want to change
them to your own ISPs.  I haven't used this setup, I'm running static
