How to get a demand dial interface for an Usb ADSL-modem in Win2k Routing and Remote Access?

I'm trying to get to work this configuration:

I've got a Win2k Server-system up and running perfectly.  I used it for NAT routing in my Home Network in combination with a Cable broadband connection without any problems.

Recently I moved and found a much more interesting ADSL-offer.  I got a Usb ADSL-modem from a friend (an Asus AAM6000UG), downloaded and installed the software and everything worked.

When I tried to alter my Routing and Remote Access-configuration I could not add a new Demand-dial interface for the modem ...

More in detail: The driver software installs an ATM-connection which gets connected the moment the modem gets synchronised.  When dialling in, PPPoA is used.  But seems not to be a possibility in RaRA in Win2k ...

Does anybody know how to?  I know it is awkward config to have an 'amateur' ADSL-modem working with 'pro' software like Win2k Server, but still, I'd like to get this to work ...

Thanks in advance for any answer,

If the modem driver does PPPoE internally, you cannot have another device doing it at the same time. You would need to put the modem in a bridge mode first to use PPPoA on the server.
