When you contracted with Aol to use broadband, didn't you receive a kit of parts and more important a CD to install the Voyager and Aol 9?
I did so a couple of years back when BB became possible at last in my area.
I realise you have been up-graded as you used it on the PC, but I would feel more confident in your shoes by installing version 9 from a CD first on to the Laptop.
There used to be lots of these CDs tumbling out of every magazine across the board. Surely a friend has one or as a last resort ask for one directly from Aol.
