     Yes Lynette, To access the web you need a modem and an ISP (Internet
     Service Provider) Now there are ISPs and ISPs. Today I am really busy,
     and this is a vast topic. All I can say for now is: stay away from the
     BIG "ISP sharks" (I have a particular beef against AOL) Get a list of
     all of them, compare and shop around. I like the best the one who do
     not impose their own software on your order to acces the
     net, but instead they provide you the latest version of Netscape or
     Expolorer (both are excellent choices) and once you are connected to
     their site, "Anywhere you go, well . . . .there you are." (as Bukaroo
     Bonzai would say) free as a bird, no need for you to wait minutes and
     minutes for the ISP to download all their crap into your computer's
     cache ...big money for them you know? because TIME is really MONEY for
     them and is actually their golden commodity...the more you are forced
     to stay on the line the more money they make.
