We are trying to setup a modem connection between a Linux host and a Win95 client. We don't know how to do it. Could anybody tell us what programs to use on the Linux side and how to set it up so a host/client connection can be made with the Win95 side? We need to know how to type the instructions for the program in a step by step fashion.

I think you need the diald program.
At the very least you will need the ppp daemon (pppd). There is a PPP Howto (on Sunsite).
It contains all the data on where to get the programs and how to install them.
Other useful documents include the Serial and the Net-2-HOWTO.
