Greetings,
  I am at a dead end. I need to create dial-up accounts on a Slackware 3.1 box. The box is Internet/WWW ready and must be able to be dialed into from Win95/Win3.x PCs. All of the HOWTOs I have found only deal with Linux to Linux connections. I am continuing to look but would greatly appreciate any help, at the very least to be pointed in the correct direction.
 Thanks.

What you need to do is set up the server as you would for a linux dial-up account and then create a dial-up script for win95 using the dial-up scripting tool. It would look something like

proc main
delay 1
transmit $USERID
transmit "^M"
delay 1
transmit $PASSWORD
transmit "^M"
transmit "xxx" where xxx is the name of a pppd script for users
please e-mail jason@onecall.com.au for more info regarding this setup method as I am currently running a web site similar to yours.
