You can setup windows to make the freebsd box dial/hangup... But by far the 
best optoin is to use a switch, I just turn the modem on to use it, and off 
to disconnect (:

Another really clever idea however is to have a web page on the FreeBSD box, 
which allows the user to start or stop ppp. So then your default home page 
can have a connect/disconnect icon! (Or even extra functions like shutdown 
and whathaveyou).
