I have a hp with roadrunner continually on at home.  I want to know HOW when I go to another town or
some other house.  

How can I just (dial-up) using a modem to connect to my home computer for internet access?

PCAnywhere is one thing that comes to mind, and you will still have the internet speed on the home computer.  You will just have to wait for screen refreshes acrss the modem.  PCAnywhere is a product made by Symantec.  http://www.symantec.com

and why in the world would you want to do this, not sure about where you live but I can't drive 10 miles in any direction from my house without paying toll charges on phone calls.  That would get expensive.  Why not look into one of the free dial up services if money is the concern?  Just can't imagine this being a good idea.  As far as dialing in to your PC you will need RAS unless you want remote control like pcanywhere  but that is a pretty expensive option.

There is the option of installing "Dial Up Server" as part of the Communications portion of W98SE, and presumably later OSes. You would probably have to configure ICS (Internet Connection Sharing) in order for the remote system to get an IP address and be able to use the resources of the "server". I would imagine that, if you wanted to use File/Print sharing, you would need NetBEUI installed on both client and server.
