eliminate auto dialup

Mac G4, OS9.2.1? [whatever the latest one is]

How do I disable the internet auto dial feature so that the only time that connections are made is when I choose to do them with remote access.

I know it is a nice feature to bring up IE, select a URL and the Mac automatically dials. But it also does it when I do not want it to. Like if I disconnect before the current page is completed or some pages [I believe the NY Times is one] automatically refresh periodically. So if I disconnect with one of those pages displayed and do not quit IE, it may dial up again.

I know that I can quit IE [or Netscape] or I can turn off an external modem or pull the wall jack on an internal modem but would like to just turn the auto feature off.

I hope you understand what I mean.
