For some reason my dial up doesn't want to accept my password.  It always comes up with it's own password which I dont know what it is.  It's quite long, not sure how many character, but when I tried to change it, it would come back.

yes thoses asterik symbol that appear on your passwors appears to be longer as win2000 has 128 bit encryption for better security reason. But the passwrod still remain the same. If you are having a problem with the current dial up networking (DUN) setting, justr remove it and recreate a dun again.

cooljam23, kahlean is right... A saved password always appears as 14-16 little asterik's *******... Thats just so someone who is trying to figure out a saved password has no clue as to the real amount of characters involved...
-Your DUN profile is messed up , or you're making some kind of mistake (caps on etc)..
