Not the way you want to. AOL has stated it's not going to be developing Linux support, at least not for a while IF they do. But i read a column about a guy who got it to work using wine and aol version 2.5 and then he could only read email nothing else. I found the article at doing a search for "Linux support". But you and I as users of AOL are stuck for now. I do have a local free ISP though, so I can connect through linux using kppp. Maybe in your twon they have a similar service...That's as far as my AOL Linux knowledge goes.
