This should be easy enough to do with Linux (I'm not familiar with Mac
settings). On your DSL-connected box, just set the DSL connection to be
the default gateway. Also make sure that the IP subnets for the LAN and
the DSL do not intersect, which they might if you are using a router for
both connections.
