How to Use AOL with Internet Connection Sharing (Q230233)
http://support.microsoft.com/search/preview.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;Q230233
SUMMARY
This article describes how to connect to America Online (AOL) 4.0/5.0/6.0 when you use Internet Connection Sharing (ICS).



MORE INFORMATION

AOL 4.0
If you use different AOL accounts on multiple ICS client computers, use the AOL dial-up program to establish a connection to the Internet for each ICS client computer. You can use chat, messaging, and e-mail through your Internet connection.
Host and Client Computers
If you use different AOL accounts on an ICS host computer and multiple ICS client computers, use the AOL dial-up program to establish a connection to the Internet on the computer.
AOL 5.0/6.0
Using AOL 5.0/6.0 with ICS and Digital Modems (DSL, Cable, Etc.)
If you are attempting to use ICS and AOL 5.0/6.0 on a host computer that uses a network adapter rather than a modem to connect to the Internet, you may experience difficulty in establishing connections from client computers.

This occurs because by default, Windows 98 can only bind TCP/IP to four network adapters at once. The installation of AOL 5.0/6.0 creates five instances of network adapters:
Network adapter for the digital modem
Network adapter for the intranet
Dial-up adapter
AOL adapter
AOL dial-up adapter
You should probably not install AOL 5.0/6.0 on any host computer that is using a digital modem. Installing and using AOL 5.0/6.0 on client computers should work because they will only have four network adapters.

Thanks for the info stevenlewis. Gave some insight into my problem. Could 2k have the same problem as 98? It seems unlikely, but I dont have any other ideas.

Fooling around, I did actualy get internet shareing to work, sort of. I found that I didnt need to disconect for internet shareing to take affect. I set up ICS and went to his computer to do the same, and connected with his computer! I thought it worked-till I sat down at mine. I tried to open experts-exchange, and aol went byebye. Had to totaly restart!!! Aol seems to hate internet shareing. Like its programmed to shut down any attempt at networking. When I am online, I notice that my roomate cant accsess any files on my side. wish there was a way around

There may be, look into third party internet connection sharing, like sygate, wingate, winproxy. Don't know for sure if they will work with AOL, but the websites should be able to help

Sorry! I completely forgot about this question (and gave up on that network!) I am sure that a third party program would have fixed it. Thanks for all your help steven.
