[Snort-users] DSL Monitoring

I'd like to start monitoring my home DSL connection
with Snort, but am not sure which interface to watch.
Sitting behind my NetDSL modem is a RedHat Linux
system that runs PPPOE to establish a connection to
Earthlink. The interface eth1 is physically attached
to the DSL modem and ppp0 is the one that the PPPOE
software brings up for the actual connection.

When I apply firewall rules, I add them against the
ppp0 interface, would I use the same one for Snort or
the eth1 physical interface? Should I place a hub on
the same connection as the DSL and add another
interface just for Snort monitoring?

Any pointers would be great.
