The search button will yeild you with lots of answers to that question, in a way. If this ISP allows you to connect with the ONLY THREE THINGS YOU NEED to get online, USERNAME, PASSWORD, and PHONE NUMBER, then there's not a problem. If they use some windows crap software, they're doing something to control you. Call them and ask if linux can connect to them. Don't bother asking if they support it. They likely won't know what you're talking about.

There you go, then. Get a username, password and dialup #. You're good to go. kppp works well to get you configured. Good luck!
