Exactly. Most ISP supplied Fiber connections are presented to the user
as either a 10Mbps or 100Mbps Ethernet interface - RJ45. If this is the
case, then m0n0wall will handle it as it handles any other Ethernet
connection. You will no doubt be receiving a static address/subnet
either manually or DHCP-assigned. Just set it up like that and ignore
the fact that fiber is the delivery method before the box that you
connect into. :)
