aRi,<P>YUes you can link it here :)<P>Click on the FAVORITES in your toolbar at the top, when a drop down window appears click on FAVORITE PLACES.<P>When the Favorite Places box comes up.. SINGLE CLICK on the "Garth Board" you have stored... then at the bottom of the Favs window click on "EDIT" and a window will come up.<P>the bottom line in that window .. is the Link address (Will start with "aol" :)<P>Copy it.. and paste it into this reply window on PG.<P>and to do the link you do this:<P>[.url](paste addy here)[./url] (minus the periods before "url"<P>then send it.. and walla a AOL link on PG :)<P>But just remember.. for people to goto it.. they also have to be using AOL, and be using AOLs embedded Browser. :)<P>JasonN

Hey All,<P>I AM on AOL and I had no idea there were Garth boards there. How do you get to it/them? If more than one, what seems to be the best one?<P>Also, while we're on this subject, I keep popping into the AOL Garth Brooks Chat Room but I never see any PGers there - in fact it usually sounds like some kids goofin' around.<BR>Any of you every go there?<P>Bev<BR>N

Bev,<P>I go in the "Public Room" on AOL<P>In Arts&Entertainment calls "Garth Brooks Fan"<P>But I won't go in if no one is there.. but usually it'sd very late at night when I venture in that room ;)<P>JasonN

Thanks Jason,<P>Think I'll head over to those boards right now.<P>BTW, that's the chat room I was refering to so maybe I'm just not going to it at the right times.<P>BevN

Bev, <P>I'm on AOL too. You have to be careful going into a chat room. Most of the people there are kids trying to outswear each other or people looking for um, uh, cyber you know what. ;)<P>LoriN
