Make sure you read the section in the handbook regarding this.

You want people to dial the FreeBSD box so that they can download the PPP 
software to dial the NT box?  There is some BBS software in the ports 

If the only reason they'd dial the FreeBSD box is to download 
the PPP software, then it probably wouldn't be outrageously difficult to 
write something from scratch, even.

The opinions expressed above are mine,
and if my employer shares them, 
that's his hard luck.
