Which Linux distro(s) has a PPP application on the Live CD

Here's my dilema. I have a laptop without a hard drive that I would like to use on a dialup line. So I'll run Linux from a live CD then I'd like to use a PPP application like KPPP or Gnome-PPP to connect through dialup.

I've tried Ubuntu Live but it doesn't have a PPP app available on the Live version and I cannot add one because i don't have a internet connection because i need a PPP applicaiton to get a PPP application...

Do any linux live distros have a PPP application available when it boots up?

I'm almost certain when I plugged a live version of Ubuntu Edgy into my friend's Macbook, it had KPPP AND Gnome-PPP in the menu.

Although it's not Linux (it's OpenSolaris, actually) I know BeleniX has KPPP installed, and it is a live distro, with the option to install.

I don't willingly download live distros for the most part (except for BeleniX, but that was a surprise that it was a live version; the live Ubuntu DVD came from an issue of Linux Format).
