Doing this for a friend of mine, senior citizen with very limited computer knowledge.
SHORT-STORY: My friend only uses the computer for sending/receiving email, not even surfing the Internet much. Only priority is finding a Budget Dial-Up service, if I can get it to work. My friend currently uses AOL Dial-Up, and seeking to continue if possible. His limited budget only allows for a Desktop running Linux Mint 7, and he doesn't mind.
1) Is there a Mint-Install package already available for Dial-Up Internet connection?
2) Only solution found regarding AOL Dial-Up for Linux (or Mint) is here: http://www.yolinux.com/TUTORIALS/LinuxTutorialAOL.html
Has anyone tried that? My only doubt is how simple will it be to connect on a daily basis... Anything beyond 1 or 2 clicks to access email is too complicated and out of the question.
3) Does anyone currently using Dial-Up Internet with Mint provide a solution? Online I found the following website: http://linux-friendly-56k.com/
Thanks for your help,
