dial-up setup

i am installing win95 to a new pc from scratch, the question is i will setup the dial-up to a local ISP, so what kind of network adapter i need to install at win95 setup?
i choose windows logon, not MS network or Netware logon as  the start, then after win95 running, i choose the dialup properties tab and can't find the place to input my phone number, IP address, DNS server, i just can't find right place, i believe it should be in the dial-up adapter properties tab, so what is wrong

you shouldn't need to play with network control panel settings.
Just make sure that Dial-up networking installed (add/remove programs->windows tab) then Dial-up Networking will appear in My Computer. You then enter there and create a new entry and there is where you can enter in your phone number and ip/dns stuff.

strange enough, i reinstall the win95 and at one step it asked which network adapter to install, and TCP/IP is not there(it is necessary for PPP to work) so i choose add but computer can't find it. then after win95 running i checked network configuration in control panel the TCP/IP is missing, so do you think if i choose add tab it will find it from cdrom and add it? i need to configure my gateway and wins server, as well as other parameter, not only IP/DNS.

tcp/ip isn't a network adapter so it will not be in that list (it's a protocol). Dun installs a Dial-Up Adapter. But again, I don't think you can setup this up during win95 setup. But you can choose to install Dial-up Networking from add/remove programs if you choose custom setup.

It is it that you have to setup the isp during reinstall or something? you can add/remove/change all you want after windows is installed.

At windows set up you will choose dial up adapter.  After win95 setup completes.  Go to control panel, then network.  Make sure dial up adapter is there.  Make sure client for microsoft networks is there.  Make sure that TCP/IP is bound to the dial up adapter.  Windows log on is OK here.  Now back to dial up networking.  Make sure you select a properly installed modem to configure after you have entered phone numbers.   Server types are usually TCP/IP only with data compression enabled.  This should fix your problem.
