I access the net from a public library, and would
like to know if there is a way I can receive a unix/linux
account to access through the web (hopefully free). Is
this possible? Please e-mail response.

Thanks,

Hi,

   Unfortunately, I doubt your chance getting a free account anywhere for free. Mostly due to the abuse of those accounts
and administrative time attached to it. Few years ago lost of
startup ISP used to give free account trial, but hackers start
to abuse them using them as a jump point to attack other systems
on the Net. Some commercial filed suits ... so no more free account.
   But unlimited Internet access are cheap these days, mostly under $1.00 a day, from your local ISP or major ISP such as Netcom, Earthlink ....
   Hope it helps.

Best regards,
Minh Lai
