    Does VectorLinux 7.0 SOHO have dial up for the Internet?

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    The standard NetworkManager application should be able to set up a dialup connection using the PPP protocol. I've done this on a number of Linux systems over time. I've done this both with broadband (cell) modems as well as serial modems. I haven't done so in about 5 years however, so my experience is a bit dated.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.

    I currently have VLocity (Vector 64 bit) on my playputer. It uses Wicd for network management which doesn't handle dial up. However, it does have the Chestnut dialler installed by default.
