Every time I switch users, my dial-up connection is disconnected. How can I
stop this occurring to save dial-up connection each tim I switch between
users?

Don't switch users. Create one profile that everyone can use.

Download and install TweakUI from:

http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/pro/downloads/powertoys.asp

Click on the "Logon" header and check "Keep RAS connection ...".

Then, when you fast-user-switch, the new user should see a running Internet
connection.

You may have to set up a new Internet connection by running the New
Connection Wizard, merely so that it places the icon on All Users desktops.

HTH :-)
