How do I set up a working dial-in server for remote access?

How do I setup a working dial-in server for the purpose of remote access to my home network? VPN is not an option as I am ditching my ISP and therefore need direct dial-in.
You need a modem attached to a machine on your home network, and a telephone line that does not have an answering machine or voicemail attached to it. Configure the Routing & Remote Access service to accept incoming connections, and enable the appropriate permissions to allow your user account to dial-in. (You didn't specify whether you're running NT4 or 2000 server. The former sets up permissions in the RAS Manager, the latter in User Manager.)
