Linking email account to Google account

I have set up a google account and would like to link it to an existing email address I have so that I can log in using the non-gmail email address.
I have done this before but for the life of me cannot do it again. Google seem to have changed their procedures.

This is not just for sending and receiving email from the account on the old email address but I would like to log in using it.

any pointers please
