What do you need a phone line for, like what would ever be the point of
running a mud on your own machine, and HAVE to dial up somewhere with it???

As long as the tcp/ip protocol is installed, and you have a telnet app, you
can telnet to your computer, as above.

To install tcp/ip, open control panel, and under network, click add, then
protocol, then microsoft on the left, tcp/ip on the right, click OK and
it'll install and you should be fine.

This is all assuming you have win95, if not, nevermind :)

Av fun, good luck an hey...enjoy life :)
