Netzero: You can't. Netzero uses proprietary Windows software, with a
large number of security routines built in to prevent access without
Now for two free ISPs that you can connect to from Linux:
Freewwweb (http://www.freewwweb.com): They require you to set your
homepage to http://home.freewwweb.com, which rolls over to
freeewwweb.snap.com. Limit 80 hours a month connect time, but you can
create up to 5 accounts with them.
One Nation Online (http://www.1nol.com): They don't require you to set
your home page to them, but they ask that you visit that page in your
session on the honor system. They want you to download and use their
Windows software, but you don't need it and can get around it like
*) In your connection, enter "user@1nol" for your username, where
"user" is your username, no ".com" or anything like that
*) For password, enter your chosen password plus "xms", eg,
if your password is "sugarpop", you enter "sugarpopxms"
I should note that I am currently connected to 1nol on my Redhat Linux
box, no problemo :)
Now if you'd like more info about Free ISPs and community freenets and
such, there is a page you can visit at
Also, there is a discussion mailing list on Egroups for free internet
access called FreeNET. You can subscribe by emailing
firstname.lastname@example.org, or visiting
http://www.egroups.com/subscribe/freenet. The FreeNET list's home page
is at http://freenetlist.cjb.net
