If you are going System 6 to Dialup, you should have no problems. You
just need MacTCP and a PPP client (I believe there is one available as
part of a MacTCP bundle, if not I believe FreePPP is S6 compat.)

The 2nd machine to act as a MacIP router was only if you are doing TCP/IP
over AppleTalk, which isn't needed if you have either an ethernet card,
or are going thru a dialup modem connected directly to the S6 mac.
