Error Setting up Linux as a RAS - is is possible?

I need to setup my Linux Server as a RAS, does anyone know how to do it? I have just spent all my money on my hardware setupand an ADSL line, things where I live are VERY expensive. I need to setup my RedHat 7.3 server to be a RAS for myself and my business partner, can anyone please redirect me to a URL or something, I have searched all the howto's, and tried searching the net, can someone please give me a paw.

Thanks in advance

Do you want this machine to be RAS for Microsoft RAS or some other type of Remote Access? Could you be a tad bit more specific please?

I need the system to be setup in such a way that I can be able to dial up to the server and get internet access through the server to the NET, we will be installing and ADSL line there, so I will to be able to acces the net from my home system through that server to the net. My previous office had a RAS, but it is a very expensive additional piece of hardware that we cannot afford right now. So I am needing the server to be a "router" in a sense for internet access.

I hope that this can give you inough info to help me..

Thanks in advance.

I have never done that myself but after a few queries on Google I did come up with this link that looks promising:

Hope that helps out.
