Nope, USB ADSL modems are not supported. There are FreeBSD drivers for
a few USB ADSL modems available, but I'm no big fan of those modems
because they need (proprietary) microcode downloads and that kind of
stuff. Try getting an Ethernet ADSL modem instead (also called bridge),
they're easier to handle and IMHO much more reliable too.
BTW, PPPoA means you'll have to use PPTP on your m0n0wall's WAN
