Well, I know in Windows 98 if you use the internet wizard you can set up
a PPP account, and you can have it automatically disconnect once it
detects that the network is not being used.

I don't see why this can't be used for any PPP account.

You can get to the internet wizard by going to the HELP [start][help] and typing
"internet" in the index.  One of the options is the internet connection wizard.

Regards,
