SLIP will be your best bet.  There should be instructions for SLIP in the
MINT-Net archive.  

PPP is there, but according to Kay, some of the daemons and drivers are not
complete.  He states that someone is working on them.  This is what I am
waiting for since my company only provides PPP access and not SLIP.

The above, plus a high speed modem (the higher the better!).
Once you have a connection, it would be best if you had some of the useful
network-type programs...telent and ftp come to mind.  I figure with those two
I can do most anything.

I am waiting to try some of the other stuff like gopher and lynx.  Here at
my company we are shifting to heavy WWW usage, and with lynx or gopher, I 
can access most anything here in the lab.

Now we just need to get ghostview/ghostscript up and working with Mint(not GEM)
For that matter we need to get some kind of X interface-type standard...
