A friend has bought a new Lap Top and made back up discs ok, but now wishes to get online using Dial up only, briefly how does one go about connecting a new Lap Top to ones BT Phone in order to use Dial up only ?

Does the Laptop have a built-in V.90/v.92 Dialup modem? If so, there will be an RJ11 port with which to connect a standard modem cable between the Laptop and the phone line.

Otherwise, an external modem (USB or, if there's a slot, PCMCIA) would have to be connected.
