@reg wow, this is going back a while. Removing the message should also take away the stutter dial tone. Dial 10120. The password is usually the last 4 digits of the telephone number
I seem to recall that there was also a tick box in the modem properties to "ignore DIal tone".
What you can also do is add an moden "INIT" string to your modem properties. Using ATX3 should force dial regardless of if there is no dial tone.
but as I say, been a while and don't have a dialup modem to test anymore.
