I am a teacher.  We have a dedicated ISDN line for Internet access at our school.  We would like to set up a Linux server so that we can dial up for Internet access at home.  Is this possible?  If so, how?

Of course it is possible but do you want to set up the linux server at the school so that you dial into it or do you want to use a linux server to dial in at the school? I will give youan answer to the both anyway
for the first case:
make sure you have the ppp package
add a user and give him a home directory of /tmp
make his login shell /etc/ppp/ppplogin
go to /etc/ppp and write a script similar to this
#!/bin/sh
mesg -n
stty -echo
exec /sbin/pppd passive crtscts modem
call the script ppplogin and chmod 0755 ppplogin to make it executable. set up your modem using either setup for slakware or linuxconf for redhat or yast for suse linux you should then be able to dial in using this user name and passwd you created.
for the second case simply run pppsetup and it will ask you a series of questions which if they are correct should enable you to use the serveer to dial.
In both cases the modem has to be setup.
