I have dial-up and I don't understand what the problem is?
Unless you are charged by the minute.......

So I installed Warty from CD...

And have upgraded over the dial-up..

OK.. The 

apt-get dist-upgrade takes three days... So what...  I was planning on
being alive those three day anyway....

Good Luck
