Does Mepis have a ppp program in the Live version


I was just wondering if when booting up the Live version of Mepis if it has a PPP application available? I want to use dialup from the live boot (ie running from ram off of the cd) and cannot download a ppp application so just wondering if one's available when it boots from cd..

Those types of apps are usually under networking or internet.

I just booted a SimplyMEPIS 6.5.02 CD on a 3rd computer to verify this:

KMenu >> Internet >> Connection >> Internet Dial-Up Tool (KPPP)

It's the same on my installed SimplyMEPIS 6.0.
