You can set up some kind of local network with your PCs and then (probably) it could be possible. For details please see/search "Linux Networking" subforum since I'm not an expert in this parts.

I have not done this, but I know that XP can share a connection. You will need an ethernet crossover cable (NOT a regular ethernet cable) OR a ethernet hub or switch. Of course you need network cards in both computers. Check the XP forums for a how-to for sharing a connection.

Which dial-up service are you using? If it is Linux friendly it might be easier to conect with the Linux box and share to the XP box (safer too).

Good luck.

Um, Ok, AOL. Using Linux. This is a site that is all about that:

http://yolinux.com/TUTORIALS/LinuxTutorialAOL.html

This is pretty involved: Someone had to reverse engineer the AOL software. It will probably be easier to connect with XP, then share the connection. You might try getting this to work with two XP computers first, then connect the Linux box. The problem is that I do nnot know how to set up XP to share a connection.

Good luck.
