*SIGH* Puppy Linux is inanimate; it doesn't *WANT* to do anything.

Pet peeve aside, Puppy has been my primary OS for over two years
(typing this from Puppy 3.01 using Seamonkey), and it does not have a
default 'net connection.  I have not tried it in dial-up mode, but it
doesn't connect to anything via ethernet until you go through Setup
and configure it to do so. That's apparently one reason it is such a
light-weight distro; not as much automagical configuration overhead.
Once it's configured, it DOES work beautifully with an ethernet
(cable/DSL/etc.) connection to the .net.
