Default Win98SE config probs

Am trying to config Win98SE from scratch and have the following
serious problem.
Run the Internet Wizard, use manual as i already have an ISP.
Put i all parameters possible and then have to diddle modem for
115Kbaud, max FIFO; have to diddle dialing for always use area code; and
some other diddling i do not remember to get the damn dialing to work
correctly.
*First* time, IE does automatically "launch" dial-up, connect, etc.
**Problem #1: Absolutely hate it taking forever to login (booting an
original 1980 IBMPC XT was faster).
So i am on the net (whoopee - except i am asleep due to long wait).
Close browser, disconnect.
Try IE again, same story.
Shut down, power off, power on, boot to Win98SE.
**Problem #2: Try IS and *NO* auto dial-up; no fiddling will fix it.
Wipe HD and try again.
Same sh*t.
Am getting ****ed.
Any positive suggestins to *permenantly* fix these problems?
