I am changing to a different computer using my same provider, I had win. 98 on old computer, now I have a compaq with win XP.

Does your new computer even have a modem? Where I am it is very hard to find a newer computer that comes with a modem. Most computers have networking cards which with a little work you can plug aphone cord into. If you know you have a modem you should have disc that you would use to setup the dialing software for your internet provider or you might be able to download it online. Then you should be able to dial once you get the dialing program installed.
