Fedora Core 3 and AOL


I can't connect to the internet with Fedora Core 3. I don't know how, and I can't get a free internet in my area. If you can help, area code is 319. AOL would be nice. Otherwise I only have this Windows.
Thanks

Explanation

Okay, let me explain more clearly.

I just installed Fedora Core 3 on my other computer. I am using a different computer.

Problem: I need an internet connection, not long-distance, and this computer uses AOL. I cannot find out how to use AOL on Fedora Core 3.

What kind of internet connection are you using? Dial up? Broadband?

Whilst I am hardly a Linux guru, I do know that if you are using a cable connection of some sort, it should be pretty much a matter of plugging the line into your computer if you have DHCP enabled. However, if you're using a dial up connection, it's a much different matter. You'll have to spend a lot of time get your dial up modem configured most likely, as it's quite probable that it's a WinModem.
