PPP negotiation, I'd think.  You want getty to start ppp instead of
login.  I think agetty is able to do that, read the manpage.

1. Using Linux to serve files to a Win95 Machine


I'm working on an end-of-semester project that requires a two PC network
consisting of a Linux (RedHat 7.2) server and a Win 95 client.  I've done
some reading and I thought all I needed to do was install / configure Samba
on the Linux box and the Windows Networking client on the Win 95 box.  It
appears that those assumptions were wrong, as the Win machine is unable to
access files on the Linux box.  What am I doing wrong?
