Smile Connecting to America Online in SUSE Linux

I need to connect a SuSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 10 via GNOME to AOL Dial Up. What is the AOL server? Is a Linux version of the AOL software required?

Hey bud!

welcome to Linux Questions! I don't think there is AOL software available for Linux but you could set up a dial-up connection using yast. Go to Network Devices and select modem, just follow the easy steps and you will be online in no time. This is how I have set-up a dial=up connection using my EarthLink account.
Good Luck!!!
