Needs to be a recent copy of AOL. Under windows 95, it is going to install
its own dialup adapter complete with tcp/ip etc.. Then, under the settings
for dialing, simply tell it that you want to connect via TCP/IP we have
lots of customers that do it. don't know why, but whatever makes them
happy. Your dialer should work just fine as long as it can connect to you ok.
