I have yet to hear about anyone actually getting online using aol as isp on linux. The stories I have heard are that aol's software does not play nice with linux clients.

after all, linux doesn't run thier adware and spyware they infest the aol browser with.

That's not entirely true. People who use Puppy Linux have a super easy install and use of a program called penggy (they call it penggy4puppy I think). And I thought that Linspire's AOL Dialer works only for Linspire & Freespire users.

I tried it on my Knoppix Linux box. Utter total failure. If you have Linspire, and it doesnt work for you :shock: I do not have a clue how to help you. And I am truly sorry to post something that you may find useless.
