This is untrue. Some ISPs require special software *cough* SPYWARE 
*cough* to connect to them. AOL is a classic example of this, but there 
are others. This software can cause popups.

To quote Netzero's (they require software also) website:
"NetZero does NOT support the following operating systems: Mac OS 9 or 
earlier, Windows 3.11 or earlier, Windows CE, Palm OS, Sega Dreamcast, 
Sony Playstation 2, Microsoft X-Box, Web TV, Unix/Linux for PC/Mac, and 
Mobile Phone Web."

This software (netzero) WILL cause popups.
"You expressly permit and authorize NetZero and its affiliates (and such 
third parties as may be authorized by NetZero, subject to the Privacy 
Statement) to furnish you, electronically when you use the NetZero 
Services or by any other means selected by NetZero, information or 
materials prepared by NetZero or by (or on behalf of) other entities, 
including advertising information and solicitations."

If you are stuck on dial up, and want to avoid messing with dial up 
networking I recommend one of these
