many support linux users.. well in connecting but no support to help you configure it.. some of even the major players like earthlink allow linux to connect..
many local isp's around you most likely don't block it. the only ones i know that most likely don't allow you is AOL due to their software required to connect.

they don't need to know. tell them win98 if they press the issue. all you need from any isp is the local dialup number and the dns numbers.

No, sometimes they require to run special program to connect...
But it's very rare.
