LINUX AS A PPP SERVER

Hi, I have RH 4.1 running with kernel 2.0.27.  I can use PPP to dial out and connect to my ISP so I know PPP is loaded and working.  I have compiled it into my kernel also.  I've also got my LINUX BOX networked with my WIN95 BOX using 3Com 100Mbs NICs.  I can connect to my APACHE Web Server on my linux box through the network.  That was easy.

Now what I'm trying to do is set my LINUX box up as a PPP server so I can dial in and get assigned a DYNAMIC IP address.  I've read & followed all the HOWTOS and README's including README.linux in my PPP dir.  I've setup mgetty and I can dial in and login BY HAND, but I still can't get PPP working and I can't dial in automatically from WIN95 DUN.  It sounds like it should be easy, but I can't get it working.

Rather than explain all of what I've done now, can you tell me STEP by STEP what I should do to get my linux box set up as a PPP SERVER ?

Basically nothing more than you've done, just check your secrets and create a sh that does the pppd server side and is named ppp, win95 executes ppp after login, but since linux expects pppd.....
