The PIX does not support DHCP on its interfaces.  Something like a Nortel Instant Internet might work for you.

Alfaisal Netscreen 5 elite is probably one of the easiest hardware firewalls to configure in the world. It supports everything any other top rated firewall does (maximum security)..... & has a DSL pppoe dialer built right in... What more could you possibly need than that ?

I'm using Smoothwall (0.9.9) on a BT ADSL line in the UK.
If Smoothwall spooks you, don't worry, it comes in a downloadable bootable CDROM image.  If you've got some popular hardware (including the NIC) it pretty much sets itself up!
