Hi,
I am trying to load a SBC dial up disk on a windows 2000 professional pc to get a Internet connection.  I get a error message from the SBC disk that says I must "install remote access"
Can anybody tell me how to install remote access?
Thanks,
MCorn

Why would you need to install remote access to install an SBC dial up disk?  Remote access is for XP.  Is this disk that you are using only for XP?  Please give some more information so that I can answer your question better :)

That's the very question that I would like to know! I called SBC and they said that I need it to use the mail account that I got with them...yet that could not tell me how to install it!

I know from past experience with Earthlink and a few other ISP's, they all have their own software.  However I have always just taken the access phone number and created a dial up connection through windows and I was done.  I used Outlook to access my email and that was it.  If you have your access number, then go to Start > Settings > Network and Dial Up Connections > double click Make a New Connection, then choose  Next when the Wizard appears and choose Dial up to the Internet and follow through with the prompts.
