I don't know what your setup is, but if you have a decently fast computer 
(233+ Mhz),
but I know for a fact that AOL works with VMWare.


I'd suggest downloading the trial of the Workstation version to see how it 
works.  I used
this for about 3 months before I could convince my family to switch to 
another ISP, and
it worked great.  (if only my computer had been faster)
