Can't figure out how to establish dial-up connection

Ok, I've gotten my GUI (X window system) up-and-running now, but I don't know how to establish a dial-up connection to download the necessary files to update my OS. I've read a million articles and they all involved broadband of some sort. could someone please help me out?

OS- Arch Linux 0.6
