How is windows 2k storing phone book info?  I can not find a phone book file or a registry location that holds the dial-up info. I found a spot that hold the DUN configuration, but not the actual settings i.e. Phne number, DNS settings, and so forth?

This info is located in the rasphone.pbk file like in Windows NT4.

The difference is the exact location of this file. You have to look for it inside your \Documents and Settings folder (it's in the same partition than your \WinNT folder)

The RAS connections accesible by all users are stored in a .pbk file located at "\Documents and Settings\All users\Program data\Microsoft\Network\Connections\Pbk" folder. The name of the "Program Data" folder may be different depending on your lenguage.

The RAS connections only accesible by the user "username" are stored in a pbk .file located at "\Documents and Settings\username\... (the same)"

Your always can make a dir *.pbk /s from the Documents and Settings folder to locate these files (some of these folders I have said, are hidden)

I hope this helps
