This only works when you have the resource kit.
The utility srvany.exe wich you find on the res. kit must be copied in c:\Winnt\System32
In a Dos box use INSTSRV (Resource Kit as well)
to install the new service
      INSTSRV AUTORAS C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\SRVANY.EXE
Next thing to do is a registry edit in key
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SYSTEM \ CurrentControlSet \ Services \ AUTORAS \Parameters  with following keys
Application: REG_SZ: C:\Windows\System32\RASDIAL.EXE
AppParameters: REG_SZ: EntryName ID Password

then enable the service in your services icon (autoras)
Put the Startup Type to Automatic and Logon As to System.

good luck
