Remnants of aol causing conflict?

my friend was given an older computer with win.95 o.s., we installed win.98, he had a 14.400 modem, we purchased a new modem, I haven't made it to his puter ,won't till early tommorrow morning, BUT, it had at one time aol installed! He attempted to install the modem, it is not finding the modem, now he may have made an error installing the modem, but, is there going to be issues with the aol adapter? Although the 98 is installed, IE for example, title says. internet Ex., microsoft, provided by AOL? If so can you tell me how to remove the aol adapter and reset the tcp/ip settings
