How to limit muliple dial-up connection duration


I would like to know if Linux helps me limit or fix the dial-up internet duration of connection for multiple phone lines (5 or 6) attached to 1 PC server.
For instance , I want to install 6 internal 56K modems (attached to 6 phone lines) on my PC and configure them in such a way that the 1st line connects to the internet 3h/day and disconnects automatically then the 2nd line connects for another 3h/day and disconnects, and so on for the 4 remaining lines

You might try a cronjob with an entry for each modem.
