I'm new to XP. When I log on the internet (via phone connection) a screen pops up saying "Pre-Dial Terminal Screen" and I must OK that screen to proceed to dial up my ISP. Can I get the system to skip that step?

I believe in IE options > connection tab

you can tell it to always connect when no connectiion is found. then hit apply.

Thanks, but it didn't help. I still get that goofy window that requires me to OK it before it dials my ISP. Anybody got any other thoughts?

After tracking down terminal window, it was not ticked. So I still have problem.

In answer to previous suggestion, it does't matter which way I log on, I still have the goofy page I must OK to log on.
