setting up dial-up internet access

I am trying to set up a dial-up internet connection on my win2k.  I click on "make new connection" in network and dial-up connection then select dial-up to the internet.  I am then given three options.  When I click on "Sign up for a new internet account" or "I want to transfer..." then click on next, a dialog box immedialty appears that says " The connection wizard has not finished setting up your internet conncetion.  Are you sure you want to close the wizard"  when I select no, the same dialog box appears again and again and I have to quit the connection wizard.  When I select "I want to set up my internet conncetion manually..." I can get through the entire process of setting up the connection untill I have to name the connection.  Then, no matter what name I give it a box shows up saying something like you can't start with a space or have just a period as the name.  It's really odd.
I have booted to the CD and repaired windows using both the normal repair option and reinstall windows then repair. (I hope this makes since).  The same errors appear.  I really don't want to completely erase windows and reinstall from scratch and loose all of the programs I have installed.  
The modem works just fine.  In fact if I go to Phone dialer under accessories I can even dial the phone with the modem.  Does anybody know how to fix this problem or perhaps reinstall the files associated with making a new network connection?
