I'm getting dsl. Will a usb ethernet adapter do the same thing as an ethernet card?

Like Brian said, ethernet is more common and usually cheaper.
If you ever intend to change operating system, ethernet seems a better choice and if you want to network several computers, you will probably be better off with a ethernet card.
You can also get longer RJ45 (ethernet cables) if you move your computer further from the modem.
My experience has been that USB just isn't as stable a connection as ethernet. Just my humble opion.
