Well, you look in your phone book and find out who provides ISP services in your area. Call them and they'll probably be happy to set up (for a fee) a dial-up account for you. When you get your account, you'll be provided the telephone numbers, username & password, nameserver info, etc. that you need.

go round a friends house who is on net and using windows.  Then surf to some site which is an ISP sign-up and write down the details.  Alternatively when your friend isnt looking, quickly scribble down his detials.
