Is it possible to install Ubuntu on a machine with only a dial-up connection? That is, does the Ubuntu install CD come with everything needed to set up an Internet connection using a dial-up modem (I have a USRobotics Courier V.Everything connected to a RS232 port on a Lava Quattro-PCI).



I presently run CentOS (5.9), which does include support for dialup Internet access out-of-the-box (all of the modules for dialup are on the distro DVD). When I ran the UBuntu CD (12.04.1 desktop), there was no sign of dial-up Internet support. Am I faced with a chicken or egg problem?

Ubuntu keeps one CD distribution, not a sFedora, debian or CentOs, where you can download complete x CD distribution (where x>1). But you can try live distribution, try to set dial up connection according to this guide (https://help.ubuntu.com/community/DialupModemHowto) and/or download packages from here (http://packages.ubuntu.com/).
