Dial-up access means that you are dialing into a dial-up "IP" (SLIP or PPP) server.

VPN access means that you are connected to a VPN server over an existing IP connection.  The existing IP connection could be a dial-up connection or a "always on" (xDSL, Cable, or Leased line).

Well, sort of, but not really.  You only need 1 "real" network adapter.  This could be a real NIC or a modem.

The VPN client software will create a virtual NIC for the VPN connection.
