for a ppp dialup server make sure you have the ppp package on your box then create a user with /etc/ppp/ppplogin as his shell and then create the /etc/ppp/ppplogin shell as follows
#!/bin/sh
mesg -n
stty -echo
exec /sbin/pppd passive crtscts modem
the home directory should be /tmp.
make sure you have set up your modem properly and that it is connected to the phone line when you dial in.
If you are going to dial in using ppp then run pppsetup and fill in the appropriate info
