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).

OK i'll try edgy, but feisty definitely doesn't have it on the live cd. In case not if anyone else knows of any other distros please post them..
