A good ISP for Linux

Do any of you know a good dial-up ISP (that's reliable and cheap) that supports Linux? I tried checking on my own, but they all seemed very unreliable.

Thank you

Where? In which country? A hint might be useful......

Otherwise, any dial up provider that doesn't need to install a program to work will be fine.

Pick any provider that will allow you to connect with just a phone number, username, and password (and one that gives you their nameserver, just for good measure).Try earthlink, at&t worldnet, or you local provider. AOL is out, as they want to install oodles of win software to connect. Find out if there's a local ISP. They'll be your best choice.
