installers generally don't recognize AOL as a browser. Frankly, the
browser built into AOL 5 is Internet Explorer 4.0, which is ancient
history and doesn't support a lot of current plug-ins, nor does it work
with many web sites. Short of dumping AOL in favor of another provider,
or upgrading to OS X and running AOL for X, which has a recent Netscape
browser built in, you're best off skipping AOL's browser entirely. Once
you've logged onto AOL, you can then run any browser you want, such as
Internet Explorer 5.1.6, Netscape 7.02, Netscape 4.8, iCab...
