Setup Dial-in Server on Windows 2000 or 2003

I was trying to setup a dial-in server on one of my windows 2k or 2k3 servers. what i would like to try is to be able to dial-in to the server from a remote location using a modem and normal phone line without using the internet.

I found several litreatures online about how it should be, but most of them are for linux. I've read about Microsoft's RADIUS and IAS, but I wasnt sure if I am looking at the right material.

Is there anyone outhere who can suggest a way to handle this?

    You should think about what it is that you want to accomplish when you dial in, and how to make sure communication with the server is secure.  

    Start by taking a look at:;en-us;323441

    If you read through the whole thing, it does touch on dial-up too.  It's a place to start.
