Actually maybe, I had AOL DSL along time ago, and right after I cancelled (this was attempt 1 via verizon - not their new partnership with covad) they enabled a direct conenction with standard PPPoE, no AOL connection software needed. Dun know about the new stuff with covad though.

The AOL software indentifies you to the hub that passes you on to AOL's mainframe.
