Yes, you can get online, but it won't be for free.  "Free" ISP services
(if there ARE any these days.. are there still!?) typically provide
the service by either:

  (1) selling you a PC


  (2) using special connection software (which would be Windows-only)
      which pushes ads on your screen all the time, and which you
      likely cannot remove, nor cover up

I'd spend the $10 or $20 a month for a real ISP.  My favorite is the
one I use, although they're located in Santa Rosa:  Sonic.net.

Note, though - they just recently started providing dialup service
throughout the state!  (If only they provided DSL throughout the
state, I could use them exclusively, and not deal with PacHell directly)

Good luck!
