You need to set up ip masquerade on your linux server. You will need to compile support for ip masq into your kernel if it not there now, add a few lines to one of your startup scripts such as /etc/rc.local to set up the ip forwarding rules. Then you set up the linux server as your gateway under tcp/ip properties on the win95 machines, and put the dns numbers used in your dialup account. This is all covered pretty well in the IP Masquerade HOWTO, which is the first document you should read. (available many places on the net)

You will need to have a tcp/ip network set up before you do this, and you will probably need to assign  private network addresses to the win95 machines. Just follow the directions step by step and I don't think you will have many problems. I have had this set up in my home for about 4 months, and it works very well. I don't have demand dialing set up as yet, but you can use diald to do this - for the present I just telnet into the linux machine and run the ppp-go script to connect. The next version of linux (2.1 or 2.2 kernels) will be using ipchains instead of ip masquerade (ipfwadm) so you may have to change over to this program if you intend to keep your server updated.
