A suggestion:

Set your client to auto-dial (menus 2, 6, 10, setting 1) and set your dial-up
connection properties to not "ask for information" on dial-up (this should
prevent the dialog box popping up asking for your password (assuming you have
the machine set to remember your dial-up password).

It would be worthwhile testing this method before leaving the machine for the
weekend! ;-)

Also, note, this is from memory, and without having done it myself, and also
assumes you're using Win98 (I not sure if WinNT/95 dialup allows you to set
the "ask for information" box). YMMV!!
