:guns: :gun: AOL
ok, AOL sucks, why would you want to install it on such a clean running NT machine? Your just gonna end up with a fubar-ed NT box...but anyway:
RAS is what NT uses to identify and utilize the modem when connecting to a remote system or network (Remote Access System)
anyway I'm pretty sure you cant get around installing RAS, it should not (if you get the upgraded version available on the Windows site, not the one that came on the 4.0 CD) cause any problems with your connection to the Linux system.
But that wont matter because your system will come apart as a result of the AOL install soon enough.
AOL supporters bring on the flames, Ill take you 1 by 1, I hate AOL, and have tons of valid reasons why. PM for a list if you have nothing better to do
