Puppy Linux 2.1 now works with LT Modem Dial-Up!!!

Hello Everyone,
Up until now Mepis 3.4 and Linspire were the only Linux Distro's that gave me dial-up internet access upon boot.
Not Anymore!!! Well done Puppy Linux 2.1 "Seamonkey".
On line within 30 seconds of booting, very easy to enter Log-on details and connect to the internet.
My Computer is an "Optima" with 2.6GHZ Celeron CPU brought from Dick Smith Electronics in Australia in 2003, so if you have one of these computers, Dial-up should work for you.

This will help alot of Newbies get online.

One last comment: Puppy linux is on 66.6MB's in size so you can download it with Windows on Dial-Up overnight like I did and be surfing the net with Linux.
