Your own dialup ISP

Does anyone know of a way i can dial my linux box from anywhere and use it's internet connection. I have a cable modem at home but i stay at my girlfirends a lot. I don't want to pay another provider for internet access when I am over at her house. All I want to be able to do is dial up a modem connected to my linux box and share the internet access. Basically become my own ISP... any suggestions...

My second question would be how can i run voice mail at home and still be able to get to my box? ie "press 1 to leave a message press 2 to connect" Catch my drift...

For the dialin, check this:

This is for an RH distro. But the principle applies almost to all distros.

For the second issue - I have no idea how to do this in Linux. It looks like having a switchboard of some sort for this.
