It keeps asking me for my Proxy settings and I am on dial up so I do not have any.

This appears to be a problem with the website, not
with Java.

In trying to get that document in a web browser I
find that the following site does not respond:
http://azure.puzzlepirates.com/aclient/client/getdown.txt

However this URL does return a document:
http://www.puzzlepirates.com/aclient/client/getdown.txt

I don't know if that will work as intended, however.
You could try to trick Windows 98 into using that
site by putting
64.95.126.129 azure.puzzlepirates.com.
In the hosts file (that's the IP for www).
