Default XP Install + DSL Question

I'm re-formatting my neighbor's computer, and they currently have Verizon DSL. I know they are bad with keeping stuff, like original CDs, instructions, etc...

My question is, when I restore their computer, will XP pick up the Verizon DSL connection automatically, or will I need the oringal Verizon DSL CDs to re-configure their service? I don't want to install windows then realize I can't update the darn thing cause DSL isn't active.

Has anyone done this before and knows what'll happen?

Thanks

You can setup PPPoE through Windows or use the configuration CD. You will need their username and password.
