RE: free Interrnet provider for Linux? INFO
Not sure how my post made it onto debian-devel, but cross-posting anyway.
Here's the important stuff from the thing worldshare.net sent me.
Apparently the site now says they don't do Linux, but I use it all the time,
it's just a normal ppp connection.

I'd love to get a linux howto thingy from you. Enough others might
interested to make it worth posting to the debian-devel list (where
saw your post). Thanks.

I just want to know your DNS and other pertinent settings. What are they?
There's certain basic information that anyone would need to know in order to
successfully set up dialup and e-mail configurations for a WorldShare

WorldShare User ID)

* Dialup Number: Get this from www.worldshare.com/phonelist.htm
* Primary DNS: 126.96.36.199
* Secondary DNS: 188.8.131.52
* E-mail Login: YourID (where YourID is replaced with your WorldShare
User ID. NOTE that you use just the User ID for e-mail login)
* E-mail Password: Entered as selected during registration...passwords
are case sensitive!
