Hey, dial-up is all I use; it matters 100% to me. There are a lot more dial-up users out here than you realize.
If you're going to be using Linux distros, do yourself a major favor and get a serial, hardware modem, like U. S. Robotics which usually works on every Linux distro I've tried.
Actually, that's my question: Does Vector Linux 6.0 have dial-up? Apparently, it does, if there is a Chestnut dialer.---And, under Vector Linux System Administration guide, it does list :
I ask because I've experimented with several different distros, and some of them don't even have dial-up included. It's all for networking on LAN, etc. BTW, more and more people are returning to dial-up because they can't afford the high dollars for high-speed broadband connections. I never stopped using dial-up. It meets my needs; I'm not in a hurry. So, please, all of you who write distros, don't leave dial-up out!
So, I'm on my way to the Vector linux store to buy VL and install it.
