Ok, i found a free internet provider....

However, this poses a problem. I have to have Lindows/Linspire in order to use it. How do you suggest going about this problem??

Go to the Linspire site and get a copy. And this is moved to the main Linux-Distributions forum, as it's not an Amigo issue.

Ok, thats great, except I already have Amigo 2.0, which is based on slackware 9.1. Is there a way to convert this to Slackware or get a package that allows me to run this program on Slackare based distros?

Is this ISP a broadband or dialup provider coz if its dialup, all you will need are a few details and any distro can be used to access the net. It would probably be the same for broadband as well.

Im gonna talk to the creatpr and see what he used, however if some one has a link to a PPP package or whatever it is, I think maybe a piece of the kernel??? any if any one has it let me know.
