    I doubt it, I have never seen such a ting. But I could be wrong.

    If you don't have a NIC, they are really not that costly. The price is about $10 for a decent NIC.

    Good luck

    i read this:

    but this doesn't work because linux can't find ppp0
    do you know how to create an interface like eth0 ?
