being an external USB modem, it is probably a "winmodem" and you probably won't be able to find propper drivers. If it's a popular model, someone has probably "hacked" the windows drivers or made new ones to work with linux, but does anyone ever get that lucky?

Your probalem is further complicated by your using AOL... Last i checked they didn't have a linux version. If you have 2 pc's and ethernet cards, you might be able to use a windows aol connected pc to share your internet connection to your linux pc, but you are probably not going to have an easy time of it
