Its not that hard, just get a modem and dial it up to your computer, several free guides out

Forgive the ignorance, but I thought you couldn't get speeds that fast over a phone line? Or is this just a "how to get internet on your DC w/o paying for another ISP" deal?

basically. You dont really get broadband speed, you get 33.6k, which is how fast a 56k modem uploads at =). It is plenty fast for most games though, and with the info going a negligible distance, it can sometimes be better than a regular 56k modem, but still no where near broadband.
