No can do!  

AOL 4.0 and 5.0 don't work on NT or 2000.  

The reason is that both use a pseudo network adapter call the AOL Adapter.  This is a Windows 9x device driver that cannot work on NT/2000.

All you can do is use the older AOL 3.0 which uses direct modem access.

This seems like a major oversight on AOL's part but supporting NT/2000 users vs. Win9x users doesn't seem to be in their plans yet.

My advise is to switch to another service provider that uses standard Windows dial up network capabilities.
