To reach CONTROL PANEL from DESKTOP create a new SHORTCUT by right clicking anywhere
on DESKTOP.  For the COMMAND LINE use this:

C:\WINDOWS\CONTROL.EXE

Run MAXIMIZED.

Err.....hmmm....dialup init string to dial Tone opposed to Pulse is ATDT (DT= Tone Dial) ATDP (DP= Dial Pulse)
on most modems.  What program are you using to dial out with?

Directly updating the modem initialization string is an ANCIENT way of getting
at these things.  My suggestion is menu-driven and should work.  I suppose it
creates a modem string in some *.INI file on the system, but NOBODY does it
directly now that Windows 98 is available!
