I start it manually... I guess you'd just need to figure out something that would trigger it... (such as checking when your DSL is down) and then fire off a script. The routing, as long as it is on the same machine would be automatic. You *might* have a problem with your firewall since it would be using eth0 to go to your ADSL setup (I assume) and would be using ppp0 to go to the modem. But if you're using pppoe for ADSL then it would be ppp0 in both cases....
I wonder if you could bridge these and then set up the IPs (recall an adapter can have multiple IPs) on and apply the firewall rules to the bridge. Or maybe SuSE lets you apply the same ruleset to multiple adapters? It would just seem to be a faf to have two different sets of rules that need to be kept the same (pretty much).
