i am interested.
i am also trying to figure out to get free ISP time on Linux. The
only one i found was JUNO's 10 hours per month, but to get JUNO to
work under Linux (there is a package from those Walmart Linux people)
but requires JUNO's premium service which is of course not free.
Didn't have much luck with WINE.
i suppose i need to try Win95 on VMWare Player.
Omaha need muni wifi.
