Unhappy AOL From Linux


I found this program "pang" and i can't really figure out how to use it. i'm not sure if my modem is not configured or what i am doing wrong. anyway, if anyone can either tell me what i would need to do to configure my modem or if someone knows any ohter program that would allow me to use AOL as my isp. any help would be very noce thank you.

They renamed themselves to "Peng", for legal reasons, so hes got the right app.


Do you have a winmodem? If so, it may not be working.
