DSL and Home Phone network

Hello all,
I've the following question with my new DSL setup.

1.  I've a DSL setup which split my Phone Jack/Line to Voice/Data.  

Here's my question:
1.  I want to hook up a network in my house and I don't want to do any wiring.  I heard there's a homefree network which using the phoneline for network.  However, since my phone line in my study room(server located) was split by the DSL already I'm not sure if I still can use the same phoneline to do the phone networking(well I believe I've got the 4 wires phone line and 2 for data and 2 for voice now for the setting)?  
*Don't just say no if you're not 100% sure.  Thanks for ur attention.

The telephone uses only 2 wires.  The DSL uses the other 2 wires in the sable running around your house.  

The phoneline network uses the SAME 2 wires as the telephone at the same time as the telephone.  As I said, it superimposes a carrier on the line.  Think of it as another channel.  It won't interfere with the phone so you can use the network.

The "phoneline" network system superimpose a carrier signal on the existing phone wires and need only the two regular telephone wires to do this.  You will not interfere with the DSL line as long as you keep the connection only to the POTS pair and not the DSL pair.  (BTW, POTS = Plain Old Telephone System)

ok what if the phone line already got the DSL interfered?  Let say the phone line was installed with the dsl and only got two wire?  1 already taken by DSL for data transfer and only 1 left for the POTS voice?
