No problems at all. Works a lot better than my previous Verizon ADSL
hookup. I'm in Wilmington DE, but I setup my sister with the same type
of configs (She lives in Falls Church).
You use dhcp to get an IP lease, but they don't change your IP address.
You just send them your hostname and you get back your IP and DNS info.
Here is my dhclient.conf file (I xx'd out my hostname):
# $OpenBSD: dhclient.conf,v 1.1 1998/09/08 20:26:41 marc Exp $
# DHCP Client Configuration
# See dhclient.conf(5) for possible contents of this file.
send host-name "xxxxxxx.newcas1.de.home.com";
request subnet-mask, broadcast-address, routers,
domain-name, domain-name-servers, host-name;

There are two types of people in this world who are hated: Those who
succeed and those who fail...
