Looks like AOL is nowhere close to working with Wine.

However I'm pretty sure you can access it with a standard
web browser - not sure how much you can do that way though.
If AIM is important, there are some good Linux clients for
it such as Gaim.

So it depends on what exactly she wants to do, but I suspect
she's going to be stuck with Windows.
