What are we missing? Nothing that I can tell. One of my providers (IBM.NET)
only offers SLIP accounts. Connecting to SLIP-only providers only involves
installing the SLIP protocol (look on your WIN95 CD under ADMIN/APPTOOLS/SLIP
and follow the instructions), and then selecting that instead of PPP as the
connection type for that individual dialup networking icon.

GREAT!!! I'll keep this in mind when I try connecting to my SLIP-only ISP
who doesn't have Password Authentication Protocol (PAP)
